The era of mass manufacturing of clothing and other textile products is coming to an end; what is emerging is a post-industrial production system that can achieve the goal of mass-customized, low-volume production, where conventional borders between product design, production, and user are beginning to merge. To continue developing knowledge on designing better products and services, we must design clothing manufacturing processes grounded in science, technology, and management. Design of Clothing Manufacturing Processes reviews key issues in the design of more rapid, integrated and flexible manufacturing. The book’s eight chapters offer a detailed coverage of the design of clothing manufacturing processes using a systematic approach to planning, scheduling and control. The book starts with an overview of standardized clothing classification systems and terminologies for individual clothing types. Chapter 2 explores the development of standardized sizing systems. Chapter 3 reviews the key issues in the development of a garment collection. Chapters 4 to 7 discuss particular aspects of clothing production, ranging from planning and organization to monitoring and control. Chapter 8 provides an overview of common quality requirements for clothing textile materials. Design of clothing manufacturing processes is intended for R&D managers, researchers, technologists and designers throughout the clothing industry, as well as academic researchers in the field of clothing design, engineering and other aspects of clothing production.
