Discover the 6 ROUND TABLES

Bringing 2D and 3D Together: A new approach to creative design

Speakers of this will discuss and demonstrate how they will use the data (dynamic trend insights) to commence the design process. In other words, manufacturing, will be demand driven based upon likes and clicks. The first element of creation should come from 2D CAD using creative design to develop materials 2D virtual design going directly to digital printing based upon online demand, making the point that samples have been eradicated.

3D Virtual Design

Continuing the digital design approach of the future we move to 3D virtual sampling opening the opportunity to discuss virtual products, including Made-to-Measure, Made-To Order and personalization. Speakers will discuss how taking a 3D product design details (creative styling, prints and colours etc.) it is possible to develop 2D patterns, moving into digital printing of raw materials (just-in-time fast fashion) and hard printed products including trims and components even full real sized samples of footwear etc.

PLM: A Platform for a Digital Industry

This panel discuss the PLM platform that will utilise all the data so far on the journey from both previous panel discussions and will now organise the detailed Technical Specifications that will help to collaborate with the extended supply-chain partners, featuring all the best complimentary modules of the latest PLM offering to drive product development.

Fashion: A Digital Industry

The amount of customer data currently available is huge. Browsing history, purchase data, social mentions, and spending trends are all sitting in data lakes and warehouses at your company waiting to be unlocked. When used correctly, this data can show what customers are buying, when they're buying it, and what they're likely to buy next. In this way big data has the power to revolutionize how the apparel industry interacts with its customers-by creating forward thinking styles, offers, and recommendations at the individual customer level. Listening to the noise coming from the consumer based upon VOC (voice of the consumer), real-time analytics and Artificial Intelligence gleaned from website scrappers/crawlers and analysis.

Downstream Technology: Connecting the Consumer

Can downstream supply chains be revitalized to create resilience and sustained competitiveness? Across industries the logistics domain is being reimagined and digitally transformed. Here speakers will talk about an IoT use-case based on a retailer that are using IoT to improve their visibility and transparency of the organisation.

Upstream Technology: Connecting the Supply Chain

This panel will focus on what we need to find a good real-life use-case of digital transparency and tracking using RFID/QR codes/NFC/Bluetooth to see production transparency flowing, and if possible, in real-time based upon track and trace, and dashboards that will enable retailers and brands in the future to connect with their supply-chain partners to help drive production based upon demand curves, just like the automotive industry.
