PTC’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution for retail, footwear & apparel includes core technology built on PTC Windchill FlexPLM. The solution enables companies to quickly implement industry best practices developed with market leading companies and achieve rapid time-to-value with pre-configured, out-of-the-box software. With the most comprehensive set of capabilities you can manage your company’s complete assortment of products and bring more innovative and profitable products to market, faster.
With PTC, you can plan, communicate and manage product assortments to ensure the right mix and achieve targets. Additionally, collaborative line review and line confirmation enables you to compare up-to-date product development data, such as design aesthetics, suppliers and cost estimates, against merchandise assortment plans in real time.
PTC enables you to define a classified material library to manage material specifications and standards, as well as to define color standards for color definition and direction. By identifying, developing, and managing materials, colors and artwork for product design and development you can improve selection decisions and achieve greater material and color consistency with internal and external partners.
Define the seasonal direction of your products and materials based on trend and competitive analysis. Design and manage product concepts and ensure product requirements and cost targets are met. With PTC, companies can easily manage complex product lines and enable product developers to more efficiently develop and re-use designs, materials and product specification data to reduce cost and time-to-market.
Create different types of product specifications to meet the unique requirements of your various product types with PTC. For a given product, manage its BOMs, image pages / sketches, and documents across all of its variants. By analyzing bottlenecks and supplier history, you can reduce sample cycle time and improve suppliers selection.
PTC enables you to plan, negotiate and confirm the global sourcing of products and materials from a supplier network in order to optimize total cost, quality, delivery and flexibility. Additionally, you can create flexible, detailed Cost Sheets for products to capture numerous cost factors and manage costs via multi-level costing by color, size, region and distribution channel.
Manage testing for products and materials, and build quality and compliance into the earliest phases of product design and development. Alerts and reporting allow companies to be proactive about quality issues. The result: better performing products without sacrificing margin.
PTC’s vendor portal enables you and your supply chain partners to collaborate directly on product development data. With the ability to request quotes, confirm orders and provide supplier access for material and product development, you can bring products to market faster and reduce development costs.
