FRANCE: Celio streamlines collection design with Infor

11 July 2008 | News | Source: just-style.com

Men’s ready-to-wear fashion brand Celio has deployed Infor’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution to streamline the development cycle of new product launches.
 
The implementation of Infor PLM Runtime is intended to help increase productivity and speed-to-market at all stages of garment design for annual collections, in addition to regular new product introductions throughout the year.

“We wanted the company’s departments, suppliers and subcontractors to share and maintain information at all stages of the design process within a single product data management (PDM) database,” explains Francois Messager, director of organisation and information systems at the Celio Group.

He adds that the software “has already helped us adapt our working processes to become more collaborative and transparent in the way we work both internally, and with members of our extended supply chain.” 

All designers now have secure access to the PDM database, which provides a single data source for drawings, forms, schedules and technical change orders.

The solution has now been rolled-out across Celio’s different product groups, and a new project is underway to develop and automate system interfaces.

The Celio brand is represented in more than 40 countries with over 600 points of sale across the globe.
