CAD/CAM supplier Assyst GmbH has strengthened its Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) team with the addition of former Hugo Boss executive Dr Jürgen Rudolph. 

The company, which was taken over last year by 3D body scanning and fit expert Human Solutions GmbH, says it is working on a standard ‘out of the box’ PLM solution.

“To realise this, we need an experienced person who really knows the needs of our customers – one who can take that knowledge and implement it into our product development,” explains CEO Dr Andreas Seidl.

Dr Rudolph has almost 20 years’ experience in the apparel sector, including head of the CAD/technical preparation department at Hugo Boss AG and project manager for technology there.

Before joining Assyst, he was responsible for setting up various IT projects at Montana GmbH, a subsidiary of the Betty Barclay Group.
