“Everything is one place from development through production. Communication in the PLM messaging keeps everything together and reduces the e-mail madness for day-to-day follow up—especially sample status for development samples. Also, the communication with Sales to get feedback from buyers is easier by PLM message rather than e-mail.”

Michelle Heyman, Senior Technical Designer, ADPL

Product Lifecycle Management (PLM)

The first step in creating beautiful, high-quality home fashion and furnishings is the design. Like fashion, home trends are constantly changing, and designers know there is limited time from conception to manufacturing to stay competitive in the marketplace. Exenta from Aptean PLM connects design, development, manufacturing and more in one digital space to avoid industry disruptors and get on-trend product to market quickly.

A fresh take on PLM, Exenta from Aptean PLM eliminates tedious data entry and automates many time-consuming processes involved in home fashion and furnishing design. Laced throughout the system, communication tools foster collaboration and efficiency, allowing furnishing designers to discuss changes in design, specs, fabrics, etc. prior to manufacturing. Benefits that carry through the product development process include tech pack development, line and seasonal management and material and sample tracking. With Design Plug-ins for both Adobe Illustrator and 3D platform systems, PLM allows designers to get the most from a PLM solution without leaving their design software. (re-do)
