Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solutions provider Dassault Systèmes (DS) has announced that the Boston Apparel Group has selected its Enovia V6 solution for business processes and delivery of new product lines.

It includes the Enovia Apparel Accelerator for Design and Development and the Enovia Apparel Accelerator for Sourcing and Production.

The Boston Apparel Group, which was spun out of the Redcats Group in late 2008, is responsible for the development of the Chadwick’s and MetroStyle catalogue brands.

The company also manages the global supply chain of between 30 to 40 factories in North America and Asia.

"The establishment of a new company provided us with a once in a generation opportunity to shape the way we do business by building a platform that could grow with us as we build for long term success.

"However, to be successful it was imperative that we selected a strategic technology partner that would enable us to develop new products quickly and cost effectively while also collaborating with the critical elements of the supply chain including suppliers, agents and manufacturers,” said David Blakelock, vice president, technology, Boston Apparel Group.
