The author explains the benefits that can be gained from computer-aided design and manufacture (CAD/CAM) by companies engaged in activities ranging through the whole spectrum of design and manufacture in clothing and textiles. The book guides companies through the challenges of assessing requirements and estimating the short- and long-term costs of investment and provides a time- and cost-saving do-it-yourself checklist to key steps in the process. Emphasizing the importance of an integrated approach to CAD/CAM within a broader IT strategy, the author demonstrates how the whole chain of supply from design to sales outlet can be made more efficient and better targeted through more effectively networked information management, and positions of CAD/CAM in the context of other IT systems. The book also includes a listing of suppliers and systems, advice on human resource and training issues, tips on maintenance and a look at future developments.
