Lectra Introduces Easy Grading, Updated Fashion PLM

Paris-based Lectra, a developer of software, CAD/CAM equipment and related services for fashion businesses, has released Easy Grading, an automated grading application that will be included in the company’s PGS and Modaris pattern-design software solutions beginning February 2007.

Easy Grading — which has undergone testing in a variety of applications for men’s, women’s and children’s wear in several global apparel-sector companies — utilizes conventional grading methods through Lectra’s grading calculation tools, optimizing the grading process for apparel-sector companies, and facilitating and accelerating grading activities by up to 70 percent, according to the company.

The new system enables the user the select a graphical template from a user-customized library, with grading information by product type. Once a measurement chart is selected, the user loads the pattern pieces and automatically or manually positions them onto the template. Grading is then performed with a click of the mouse.

“With this intelligent application, … grading of the majority of garments can now be performed by anyone,” said Astrid Marlier, product manager for pattern-making and marker-making applications. “Easy Grading enables fashion professionals to optimize grading activity and greatly increase their productivity while capitalizing on the company’s knowledge and best practices. With this innovation, grading takes only four clicks and a few minutes!”

Lectra also has released the latest version of Lectra Fashion PLM, V1R3. The totally Web-based solution enables all those involved in a product’s life cycle to collaborate on the same virtual version of fabrics and models. The latest version offers such improvements specific to collection development process management as Workflow Management and Product Development applications.

According to Lectra, Product Development enables rapid and precise synchronization and management of multiple bids, prototype review and effective cost simulation that takes into account a product's multiple variants. Workflow Management organizes and controls collection project activities, allowing close monitoring of collection development activities at various levels.
