Description

The use of computers has opened up remarkable opportunities for innovative design, improved productivity, and greater efficiency in the use of materials. Uniquely, this book focuses on the practical use of computers for clothing pattern design and product development. Readers are introduced to the various computer systems which are suitable for the industry, the principles and techniques of pattern design applied to computer systems are explained, and readers are shown how product data management can be used in clothing product development.
Computer CAD systems; Pattern construction; Computer pattern grading methods; Pattern designing and grading; Pattern modification for size, fit and style; Marker making and lay planning; Production data management systems
"The aim of this book is to provide the principles of garment product development to computer operators or students in clothing technology and to aid the transition to computer-aided design (CAD) systems for those conversant with manual pattern construction. Computer-aided Pattern Design and Product Development is clearly written and simple to understand. It is an excellent source of information for those interested in both manual and computerised pattern design."—Journal of Fashion Marketing and Management, Vol. 10, 2006
* unlike most if not all other textbooks, this book concentrates on the practical use of computers in pattern design and product development
* enables readers to understand the development and application of size charts, the application of computers to grading patterns and the principles and techniques of marker making
* as more clothing production moves abroad, where labour costs are cheaper, western clothing companies and personnel must master the application of computers to their business to stay ahead
