Busana Apparel Group, a leading Indonesian apparel manufacturer, has opted for a Product Lifecycle Management (PLM) solution offered by Centric Software.
It’s worth noting here that, established in 1975, Busana operates 30 garment manufacturing facilities in Indonesia and Ethiopia and exports over 50 million pieces per annum.
The vision of Busana Apparel Group is to be the leading integrated solutions provider in lifestyle and fashion apparel, excelling in design, development and sourcing to deliver the right products and services competitively with a quick response.
Busana’s digital transformation drive identified PLM as the ideal tool to integrate and streamline product development and costing.
“With PLM, we expect to meet our expanding global customer demands with improved product development lead time, dynamic pricing scenarios and greater visibility in sample-making,” explained M. Maniwanan, Group Chairman, Busana, adding, “We see Centric as the top player in the fashion-focused PLM market with a large customer base. Centric PLM is very configurable, and we expect to meet our digitalisation goals. The Centric team has been highly involved and easily understood our requirements. We hope this collaboration will continue, as it is proving beneficial for both companies.”
With the agile deployment of Centric PLM, Busana Apparel Group expects a user-friendly system that can be configured to capture real time information directly from the source, allowing the Group to significantly reduce non-value-added tasks and concentrate on the core functionality of developing a high-quality product for its customers at a more efficient pace.
Chris Groves, President and CEO of Centric Software, commented, “Busana is at the cutting edge of integrated large-scale apparel design and manufacturing, and we are proud to provide a digital foundation for this ambitious project.”
