Gerber Technology has released the latest version of its YuniquePLM product lifecycle management system with new features to enhance the user experience, improve collaboration and trim time from the product development process.

YuniquePLM v4.0 software allows the system’s home page can be configured according to individual roles and responsibilities using a personal task list and dashboards. This enables users to quickly understand a project’s status and visualise what next steps are required.

With enhanced local language functionality, users navigate the system in their chosen language.

In addition, the batch and flash edit capabilities and mass find and replace functionality enable users to perform changes across multiple styles or portions of styles simultaneously.

It also enables users to transfer historical data and images from Gerber’s webPDM systems and use data and images from Gerber’s AccuMark pattern design, grading and marking system to populate tech packs in YuniquePLM.

 “Now users can take information, like material yield calculations, directly from their AccuMark CAD system and use it to create tech packs in YuniquePLM,” explains Elizabeth King, executive director of software product management.

“As a result, costing estimates are much more accurate and, by sharing data between AccuMark and YuniquePLM, users minimise errors and redundant work.”
