Module 4 - 300

PLM Integration


This class explores the vital nature of robust integrations between the two systems, which are today increasingly being deployed together or in sequence.  And as well as the more general aspects of integration, our consulting lecturers also examine more finite technical points of interoperability, such as seasonality, product hierarchies and attributes, planning, bills of material and labour, and many more.

This class also touches on the myriad points of integration that can, and should, be explored between core PLM and extended PLM (or E-PLM) solutions.

Product Description

The modern fashion production environment is built upon technology.  A large, multinational apparel organisation can have up to and including fifty different software solutions in use at any given time – many of which do not integrate or interact with one another in any way.

Of these, the two largest and most commonly used systems are PLM and Enterprise Resource Planning, or ERP.  As this beginner’s class explains, product development is typically handled in PLM, while ERP covers the commercial aspects of product positioning and sale.  But upwards oh 50 disconnected solutions (typical of a large, multinational enterprise) may all interoperate and be required to integrate in some way, which transforms data cleansing and governance into one of the most important parts of any PLM project.
