Why is Industry Dissatisfied with PLM? from Active Knowledge Modeling

A co-worker passed along a valuable article from the Active Knowledge Modeling blog entitled “Why is Industry Dissatisfied with PLM?” by Frank Lillehagen.

While the article dates back almost a year, most of the points made are still extremely relevant. Lillehagen balances the 5 basic functionalities of PLM against the list of 20 or so that it arguably should have, and what should be done to remedy the discrepancy.

As a PLM provider, naturally it gave us a lot of food for thought, but it also affirmed a lot of what we are currently doing right–particularly when it comes to addressing the needs of the design department.

BMS Presents: Featured VerTex Toolbox of the Week

BMS is one of the apparel & textile industry’s most experienced providers of money-saving PLM solutions. BMS delivers VerTex–a modular system of specialized “Toolboxes” that streamline your business from design to delivery, allowing you to turn the chaos of the fashion industry into total control for your business.

To provide you with a better understanding of the VerTex PLM solution, we at BMS will be featuring one VerTex Toolbox each week.

This Week’s Toolbox: DESIGN

VerTex Toolbox
Design is the heart of the fashion & apparel industry. In this unique
field, the creative process is just as much a part of a business as the
facts and figures…so what good is a PLM system that neglects this crucial
element? One of VerTex PLM’s most unique features—the Design
Toolbox—extends PLM capabilities upstream to where the creative process
begins. This module allows designers to create albums, design storyboards,
manage line lists and more, helping to keep all departments on the same
page in terms of important changes, new innovations, and long-term
artistic direction.
