NEW PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT IN TEXTILES AND APPAREL INDUSTRY
Keywords:Textile and Apparel Industry, Spinning, Weaving, Knitting, Nonwoven, Artificial Neural Network
Product development is key to survival of any industry with change of time. This article discusses about the process of new product development in textile and apparel industry. Major points considered during this process are demand of customers, availability of new raw materials, sustainability, economic validity and responsibiiity towards nature. Engineering of products is a complicated issue here due to natural variability of textile materials, limitations of fibre available and use of old conventional machineries in many cases.
