React quickly to fashion trends. Analyze sales and use the data to inform new designs. Offer more personalized products. These are just some of the challanges facing the Apparel, Footwear and Accessories industry.
The need for continuous innovation, at a time when most production plants are located far from development centers, has increased the complexity of the entire product development proces. A new design and production paradigm is needed.
Our solution allows you to develop new and customized products, such as performance footwear, quickly and easily. It uses a “digital thread” that extends through the entire value chain to facilitate error-free collaboration among the different teams, such as creative and technical, that contribute to the creation of a successful product. It supports innovative technologies, such as 3D printing, that let you create new components, such as soles and accessories, that can make your products unique. And it includes a plant simulation tool that supports agile and fast production start-up. Using our solution, companies can see a digital twin quickly become real and take its place in the world of fashion.

Solution Capabilities

Explore the key areas of this solution.

Adaptable Integrated BOM

Leverage the effort invested in the design process to build up an engineering Bill-of-Material definition that can be used for multiple product variations.

Aero Structures Design

With integrated tools to go from Concept to Detailed Design to Analysis to Manufacturing and beyond, NX can help the customer better meet or exceed the demand pressure from the airlines by accelerating design productivity. NX enables more design iterations in less time, resulting in bringing a better product to market faster.

Automotive Design

Changing consumer preferences and regulatory pressures are forcing automotive companies to find new ways to improve vehicle performance and design. These pressures profoundly impact the design and engineering processes. NX provides a full suite of design tools that work within a fully integrated product development system from concept design through manufacturing.

CAE Simulation

Leverage a deep integration of design and simulation to analyze product designs for improvements and optimizations. Benefit from an automation of the simulation process.

Composite Design and Manufacturing

Modernize the appearance of your products and explore the enhanced possibilities of using advanced composite materials. Analyze their impact early using simulation.

Design for Additive Manufacture

Leverage the latest manufacturing technologies, including 3D printing. Realize designs with complex and irregular shapes that would be impossible using old methods.

Design Interoperability

Realize collaboration throughout the development process between mechanical and electronics product designers in order to prevent conflicts and ensure alignment between each system prior to design completion.

Design Validation

Use your product models to display status and other information, e.g. by using color-coding on the various elements to represent the maturity of those parts.

Digital Mockup

Remove restrictions on creativity by using a product with the ability to quickly load a large number of components from multiple product lines into a single digital model.
