The New York based Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) is launching a new fashion product lifecycle management (PLM) programme for FIT students and fashion industry professionals.

The new training programme will be centred on the latest techniques and technologies for product development and other front-end fashion business processes.

The school will initially offer the course in its Enterprise Center, which serves as a business training resource for artists, designers and fashion industry professionals.

PLM software developer Yunique Solutions Inc has made a $400,000 software and services donation to FIT.
Product Lifecycle Management is one of the hottest technology applications in the apparel, accessories, footwear, textiles, and other fashion-related industries due to its ability to support and integrate the merchandising, design, development, pre-production and sourcing activities.
