The DDFG-TIP5 Phase 0 Short Term Project conducted by Haas Tailoring Company evaluated the Gerber made-to-measure software system to determine if it is capable of producing special measure military uniforms. The evaluation consisted of training for the Haas electronic pattern design staff CAD Operators, installation of the Gerber system, and three months of actual use of the system on special measure military orders. The objective of the evaluation was to determine if the Gerber system provided the necessary capabilities for a special measure Defense Apparel Manufacturer to produce custom uniform patterns in a timely manner. If we identified deficiencies, we were to provide suggestions on overcoming these deficiencies. An additional section of this report details the distribution of Air Force special measurement orders received by Haas Tailoring over the duration of this project. We used a subset of these orders as part of the evaluation of the Gerber system. The Gerber made-to-measure software program is a pre-processor-like program for the main Gerber pattern definition and generation system known as AccuMark. The primary features of the made-to-measure system are that it Provides an order entry form for made-to-measure or production orders. Uses rules and measurements which are specified and defined by each individual user. Converts order information into AccuMark order and size code tables. Can use a batch processing module to process generated orders immediately or store submitted orders for processing at a later time. Can generate markers, cut, andor plot data.
