Myntra ties up with Dassault to cut costs

Myntra, now the app-only fashion marketplace, has tied up with Dassault Systemes to run a 3D experience for customers and also cut costs and reduce time to bring samples online.

Dassault Systemes is the software arm of the Serge Dassault-run group widely known for aviation.

As a part of the deal, Myntra will adopt the 3D digital mock up and product lifecycle management (PLM) solutions starting Wednesday.

Dassault Systemes promotes its solution with the tag of ‘my collection for fashion’ which allows digital marketplaces to easily make models, virtual showrooms and study usage analytics.

The move assumes significance in wake of the growing e-commerce boom in India due to which online fashion has become very competitive.

Commenting on the new deal, Chandan Chowdhury, managing director at Dassault Systemes’ Indian arm, said: “Fashion and lifestyle industry in India is growing rapidly. Over the years, brands have realised that consumer experiences are becoming the focal point of planning because experiences are bigger than products alone.”

The solution will provide an edge to Myntra as the solution will help cut costs in getting models.

Also, the time needed to get a sample product online will also be reduced. Ganesh Subramanian, head at new initiatives at Myntra, said: “We are constantly working towards enhancing our consumer experience by leveraging state-of-the-art technologies and rolling out new initiatives.”

“Dassault Systemes’ ‘my collection for fashion’ solution will help us bring exciting products faster to our consumers. We are aligned with the vision of the company for future roadmap of 3D technology for an enhanced user experience,” he added.

Dassault Systemes worked closely with its value added reseller Simbus to come out with the new solution.

3-D printing

By manufacturing aircrafts metal parts with 3-D printing, airlines could save a significant amount of fuel, materials and other resources, a new study says.

Aircraft industry data was used to complete a case study of the life-cycle environmental effects of using 3-D printing for select metal aircraft parts, a technique that is already being adopted by the industry.

3-D printing the lighter and higher performance parts could significantly reduce both manufacturing waste and the weight of the airplane, thus saving fuel, money and decreasing carbon emissions.
