Apparel production enters new era dominated by S&T
Feb '14
The textiles and clothing sector has long been China’s strength in terms of production, due to its labour-intensive nature. But, in recent years, with the development of science and technology (S&T), the textile and apparel industry has began to change as intelligent software, new technologies, smart devices and intelligent management style are being applied to actual production, resulting in a great improvement in the quality of products, reduction in costs, and enhancement in brand value.
Textile and garment enterprises have changed production equipment, making a shift away from human labour to intelligent control, not only to improve efficiency and reduce costs, but also for sustainability from a long-term perspective.
There has been visible progress in adoption of intelligent, digital, automated and user-friendly new technologies and products for businesses and employees, which reflects the unprecedented changes that have taken place in the traditional garment industry practices. Thus, the modernization of enterprise development has taken the apparel production model to the digital age.
Even the process of costume designing has changed, and the traditional hand-drawn style has been replaced with software design patterns showing three-dimensional models.
In fact, due to the use of intelligent software, it is predicted that the future clothing would become a true multi-functional portable high-tech products.
And with the advent of 3d printers for clothing production, a new era dominated by science and technology is awaiting the garment industry, which needs attention and thinking by the costume design and apparel production community.
