What is PDM?

Product data management or also acknowledged as PDM is a system used to manage design data and engineering processes in one central location. PDM is the name of a function within Product lifecycle management or also known as PLM.

Some of the advantages of a PDM system are to track and manage all changes to product-related data, improve productivity through the reuse of product design data, and spend less time organizing and tracking design data because everything is visible and maintained in one system.

Get an Overview with PDM

There is a long way from Europe to Bangladesh. Nevertheless, communication over long distances is the reality for most apparel and fashion companies, where the production often is outsourced to many locations around the world and in different design stages simultaneously.

While one product may be on the drawing board in the company's headquarters, another may be going through the sewing machine on the other side of the world. This puts pressure on the market-decided delivery times.

Right Decisions at the Right Time

It is virtually impossible to make the right decisions at the right time without a good overview. With TRIMIT and the built-in Product Data Management (PDM) software, you get the overview you need.

TRIMIT minimizes the risk of errors, reduces the number of collection-samples, and helps to ensure production and quality along the way. This is possible because everyone in your organization has access to the same information. Even your suppliers with the web-based TRIMIT Supplier Portal have access to the latest information, regardless of their technological platform.
