Market's top suppliers meet at IMB Select

The list of exhibitors at IMB Select 2010 reads like a Who's Who of the sector's strongest suppliers of IT systems, services and strategies for fashion and textile processing. Despite an ever-fuller schedule of exhibitions and events, the sector's big players are once again showing the flag in Cologne. The concept of aligning the product ranges with the textile supply chain is proving successful.

Fashion & Textiles: IT Systems, Services and Strategies

Koelnmesse is especially pleased with the popularity of the new hall layout in Hall 9, including the new stand construction, which has been accepted by the companies and filled with life. Many exhibitors are also demonstrating their business activities in further segments of the textile supply chain using additionally booked PC Campus Units.

Specialists such as Checkpoint, GSD, Setlog and Speedstep have taken up space in the “Sourcing Management” segment. The “Collection Management” segment is especially interesting, particularly when you consider the innovation density at the relaunch of the event's content concept. This segment encompasses everything connected with collection planning, collection design, the processing of the technical design data and the entire pre-production area. Dassault, Discover e-solutions, Gerber, Grafis, ishopshape, Koppermann, PTC or SIC are all strong in this sector.

The “Manufacturing Management” segment is also traditionally well populated. This wide field is characterised by open and closed-loop control options, reduced-interface data transfer from planning specifications and logisticsoriented data transfer.

The global players from assyst, Impuls, Intex, Lawson, Lectra and Texdata are active in this area (named in alphabetical order — no ranking is implied). Intralogistical solutions, such as those offered by Dürkopp Fördertechnik, for example, are also in demand, however. A high degree of automation in combination with flexible elements ensures that the flow of goods doesn't suffer from bottlenecks. Labelling and identification system suppliers such as Avery Dennison or technology suppliers RF-it Solutions guarantee that the goods can be tracked and that their origin is traceable without interruption over the entire product lifecycle.

The entire “Finished Goods Management” sector is continuing to increase in scope and become more service oriented. The result is a mixture of purely logistical offers, order entry and order management, activities which are today accomplished using mobile terminals including web-based access to all relevant data.

Companies active in this area include Bütema, CompData, Mobimedia, Pascal and S & P. This is an area where impulses from both ends of the textile value-added chain overlap. Such impulses require systems and solutions that speed up the journey to the sales floor and ensure that the sales floors remain constantly well stocked — in other words, this is where inventory management meets ERP or PLM.
