Apparel Product Development

Online Short Course Fashion Business Apparel Design and Product Development Industrial Engineering, Quality & Production

From understanding the customers to the creation of design, learn the elements of product development and meet the buyers' needs and wants in the shortest time.

With the growing trend of buyers asking for value-added services, only factories who can offer design and product development services can compete in the global arena. Garment manufacturers have to develop their own product development team to meet their buyers’ requirements. It is also imperative to create the most relevant collection in the shortest time for the buyers, as lead time gets shorter. Product development is not just about the creation of new samples – it has to meet the criteria and the needs of the buyers. This course covers the various aspect of product development. From understanding the customers to the creation of design, articulate the various elements of product development and how to meet these challenges in the shortest possible time while giving the buyers the right product at the right time.
