Design to Cost: A Holistic Approach to Controlling Development Costs
10/1/2013
Fabric is a key component of attracting a consumer’s eye to a garment. However, fabric is also where a majority of the garment’s cost lies, at times accounting for more than 50 percent of the total. Understanding the impact different fabric choices have on a particular design and its production is thus an essential part of the product development process. This whitepaper explores how to manage the challenges of fabric selection through a “Design to Cost” approach—the practice of combining advanced technology and process management at the earliest stages of conceptualization to manage manufacturing constraints without sacrificing a beautiful end product. The approach allows companies to develop designs that appeal to consumers and meet targeted profit margins and quality levels.

8/21/2013
Leading companies and technology providers are rethinking the fundamental model of analytics, and the contours of a new paradigm are emerging.
