Abstract:

Research has been carried out to analyze defects in apparel manufacturing. Two knowledge-based software systems--FDAS.Fabric Defects Analysis System and SDAS Sewing Defects Analysis System--have been developed. The research has been funded by the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency under contract number DLA900-87-D-0018- 0003. FDAS covers the common manufacturing defects occurring in greige and finished fabrics, including those in indigo-dyed denims. SDAS covers the defects occurring in the cutting, sewing, finishing and packing departments of an apparel plant producing denim trousers. Based on the visual description of the defect in the fabric type, orientation and mode of repetition of the defect, FDAS identifies the defect and suggest possible causes and remedies.
