  • Accompanied by a graphical calendar of milestones and tasks, users can easily drag-and-drop to rearrange timing or dependencies.

Line Planning:

  • YuniquePLM’s line planning capabilities allow users to plan everything, from business financials to product development.
  • Capture planned units and initial style data to forecast budgets and financials by adding SKU plans and pricing information early on in the process.
  • Designers may enter planned colors and materials and track them against the styles in the Line List, as the projects move from development to approved commitments.
  • Create storyboards by creating or linking image catalogs to the plan. Determine the materials that should be used and gain visibility to what is actually being used.
  • Remain up to date with notifications about changes that are being made in line plans that may impact styles in the line list.
