With its rapidly changing trends and seasonal lines, the apparel industry is one of the most dynamic industries in which a company can operate. But how do apparel manufacturers keep up with shrinking product development cycles? And how do they manage to react to customers’ rapidly changing needs while also meeting their expectations?

LF Corp (LF), a Korea-based company engaged in the manufacture and distribution of men’s and women’s apparel, was facing these very challenges. As Korea’s leader in the fashion industry with over 34 brands such as Hazzys, Maestro and Towngent, LF needed to find a way to deliver a quick response to market demands.

To help meet these challenges, LF adopted Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform and its PLM solution for fashion, My Collection. 

My Collection’s Design Library has a strong data management component.  This allows LF to quickly create new products by easily modifying materials or patterns, as well as develop seasonal concepts. The solutions provide users with a single data source which allows people from different disciplines across LF to collaborate and share information such as what raw materials and colors to use in in order to get the seasonal concept right. My Collection also offers a way for LF employees, management, buyers and designers to monitor project status in real time to help make faster decisions. This led to a 60% reduction in days needed to deliver a new seasonal collection.

With strong benefits so far, LF plans to leverage Dassault Systèmes solutions in others ways.  They are developing processes to gain more business insights in order to help to improve their customers’ buying experience.  They also want to synergize collected data to forecast market trends by considering sales data and consumer feedback. And, LF plans to enhance consumers’ online shopping experience with the help of Dassault Systèmes’ 3D simulation technology.

3DEXPERIENCE Speakers Reveal Accelerated Korea BIM Momentum

Global adoption of BIM is proceeding with great momentum, and within Asia many are rapidly adopting BIM practices. Korea is one country leading the way with BIM adoption, with dramatic growth year over year.

Dassault Systèmes recently made speeches at two events focused on driving adoption of BIM in Korea. Building on the strong interest in the region, the company delivered these two talks on BIM.

Digital Tools for Sustainable Cities

Ingeborg Rocker, Vice President, GEOVIA 3DEXPERIENCity | Globe, Dassault Systèmes, presented “3DEXPERIENCITY” at buildSMART Forum 2015 Seoul, Korea on April 16.

With a soaring global population, vast numbers of people face living in cities that are decades or centuries old, built for much smaller populations with very different needs. This puts our environment at risk by wasting resources such as land, water, and energy, and makes cities harder to manage logistically.

A diverse range of disciplines are helping to solve these challenges, aided by a suite of digital tools. These tools allow scientists and city planners to see and explore the futures we are creating and their effects on their inhabitants and the planet as a whole.

Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCity | Geosphere project aims to create holistic, virtual models that enable urban planners to digitally study and test ideas. This will allow them to consider the impact urbanization has both within the invisible boundaries of their city.

This approach could lead to our reimagining of the entire discipline of architecture—With a focus not just on the resulting structure but also the impact a building will have on the entire planet and its resources.

BIM’s Evolution to Building Lifecycle Management

Dongkeun Jang, Business Experience Consultant, 3DS Value Solutions, Korea, delivered a speech at the buildSMART Forum 2015 on April 16 and the 3DEXPERIENCE FORUM Korea on April 29.

Industrialization techniques have been commonly used in manufacturing industries for decades, and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) has also been widely utilized.

Now the use of Industrialized Construction is expanding in the Architecture, Engineering & Construction industry to help improve planning, design, construction, and assembly.

The benefits of this include increased sustainability, optimized operations, lower costs, and greater safety.

With the growing adoption of BIM, companies can further benefit by implementing a Building Lifecycle Management (BLM) system. BLM puts into practice a BIM Level 3 approach that enables a highly efficient extended collaboration model based on PLM and manufacturing industry best practices.

 

To set the stage for true BLM, intuitive 3D design helps owners and architects communicate to confirm design directions and articulate design intentions.

It also builds a bridge to construction partners. 4D Virtual construction planning enables VDC mangers to evaluate better resource assignment and plan more efficient construction sequences.

EXALEAD OnePart helps owners and facility managers access specific facility information, whenever they want. Dongkeun demonstrated how projects can be managed by the 3DEXERIENCE Platform:

  • Segregated work break-down structures articulate project configurations
  • Project members can access dashboards of the latest information and project status
  • All communication is shared, communicated and recorded through the 3DEXPERIENCE® Platform

Dassault Systèmes 3DEXPERIENCE® platform applications can be part of an integrated extended collaboration process, bringing together all project design and delivery elements for more productive projects.
