Product Lifecycle Management
DeSL’s Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) module is the ultimate in collaborative product design and development. Designed to be used by all parties in the development process, the solution delivers a true web based, real time, collaborative network
specifically aimed at reducing development time lines and increasing quality.
The solution is one of the only 100% web based applications available today - developed specifically to meet the particular demands of the Fashion, Apparel and Footwear sectors. Every process from initial sample
sketch right through to final product selection is available and configurable by the end user. You can basically make the solution work in the way you wish it to.
The key areas that the system addresses are as follows:
Financial and operational planning, generate placeholders for styles, fabrics
and trims, manage progress and assign resources.
