NGC Releases New Versions of Software for PLM and Global Sourcing

New Generation Computing has issued the latest releases of its software for product lifecycle management (e-PLM) and global sourcing (e-SPS). The tools are geared toward companies involved in fashion, apparel, footwear and retail. Highlights include the vendor's CPSIA (Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act) Compliance module, and integrated support for the "10+2" Importer Security Filing requirements of U.S. Customs and Border Protection. The CPSIA Compliance module is available as an optional add-on to e-PLM and e-SPS, or as a standalone product. It lets retailers and manufacturers manage the process of requesting, tracking, approving and sending the General Certificate of Conformity and Certificate of Compliance documents that are mandated by the CPSIA. The NGC software allows companies to manage the many third-party lab tests that are required for apparel design and production. Both applications also help users to collect and manage information needed for 10+2 ISF filings, electronically share relevant information with the agent that is filing the ISF, issue alerts throughout the supply chain regarding 10+2 records, and notify import managers with the applicable details of each shipment. e-PLM includes enhancements to the fit, spec and sampling process, to allow multiple sizes and size classes per sampling, along with the ability to maintain color and grade rule tables, and label and packing instructions, over the Web.
