This module introduces the processes leading from the design of a garment to its manufacture, and also the processes that support the manufacturing activity after production has started.
Many of the issues and activities described in this module from a clothing manufacturing perspective, are also discussed from a general business point of view in other modules, such as Supply Chain, Design Principles and Business Studies.
The specific aims of this module are:
Teaching will be delivered at a distance by the use of WebCT with appropriate guidance for obtaining information from other sources such as the Internet, textbooks and journals. This method of teaching will be used to give the learner a broad base of knowledge. The assignments specified in the individual learning contract will then be used to apply this knowledge base to specific situations.
when you have successfully completed this module you will:
to demonstrate that you have achieved the learning outcome you will:
|1.||Distinguish between various garment production process stages and the significance between fabric and thread properties, garment design and manufacture and CAD/CAM applications.||
- Compare and contrast the various production process stages for a small number of garments.
- Comment on the significance of fabric and thread properties, garment design and production processes for each garment.
|2.||Demonstrate an ability to apply relevant technology, production techniques and CAD/CAM to two- and three- dimensional design and technical work.||Provide evidence of proficiency in the use of CAD/CAM systems|
|3.||Identify and solve pattern cutting problems through the translation of a design concept into an accurate production pattern, showing ability to interpret line, style and accurate measurements and proportion.||Produce an accurate production pattern from a given garment design.|
|4.||Demonstrate an understanding of the analysis of size chart data and utilise measurements in pattern construction.||Produce an accurate production pattern from a given garment design demonstrating an understanding of pattern grading.|
