Product Development

Product development is still considered one of the most important core competences of any clothing company in the context of collection development.

As an interface between purchasing, design and producer, both cutting and processing know-how and the handling of corresponding system solutions are of utmost importance in the area of product development. New technologies in cutting and construction, but also new processing methods, as well as the handling of new materials and ingredients, constantly present product developers with new challenges.

Especially the currently much discussed 3D technology is considered one of the most revolutionary technologies of the last decades within product development. It offers the industry great opportunities to develop collections more effectively, creatively and ecologically sustainably in the future. Topics such as digital body and cutting data as well as the generation of digital avatars are also closely related to this technology.

The DTB Dialog Textil-Bekleidung e.V. tries to address these topics within the product development department and to create an exchange that should be useful to you in these challenges.
