09 May How Under Armour Uses 3-D Fit to Ace Product Development
Pattern rooms are taking a turn for the modern, whether the patternmakers of yesteryear like it or not. And the modernization of that link in the supply chain has both upgraded product development and shortened the cycle.
Speaking at a Texprocess Americas panel Wednesday, Shannon Moulden, a technical designer for women’s at Under Armour, said 3-D has helped the company in three major ways: by reducing the number of redesigns, cutting the risk of missed deadlines and dropped styles, and greatly improving first samples.
Under Armour has been using Optitex 3-D technology for roughly 18 months, and already, according to Moulden, the shift in efficiency has been palpable.
