Benetton Case Study

My Unified Development & Sourcing

Protect the brand promise through a single version of the truth 

The retail ‘speed to market’ cycle shrinks every year, increasing the pressure on supply chains to be as responsive as they are cost-sensitive. Yet, with creative design,  product development and sourcing teams scattered across multiple sites, countries and time zones, lack of centralised information and workflow inhibits collaboration. My Unified Development and Sourcing offers a unified environment to manage a fashion brand or retailer’s product development, sourcing, costing and pre-production processes. It connects all stakeholders, enabling multi-category collection management in a ‘single version of the truth’ from design to delivery.

In an industry where making impressions counts, global fashion brand Benetton Group has been turning heads for almost 50 years with colorful clothes and provocative advertising. In 2011, the Group selected the Dassault Systèmes (3DS) 3DEXPERIENCE Platform, including ENOVIA Version 6 for global development and sourcing.

Enhance collaboration, speed and agility, while mitigating the risk of incorrect samples, bill of material errors, additional costs, production errors and late or failed product launches. This translates to less time re-entering disparate data and more time on developing and sourcing items to delight consumers. Flexible line planning and placeholders create structure for designers when organising product families.Through close monitoring, fashion brands and retailers can manage suppliers and reduce the risk of unplanned subcontracting to second-tier manufacturers that do not meet brand standards for product quality, or safety.
