Design: Generally speaking, most medium and large workwear manufacturers will hire designers to create clothing collections to meet customer needs. Design work can be divided into two different areas:
Creative design: Designers refer to fashion trends and market trends to design and sketch various clothes.
Technical design: Designers try to make their own designed clothing. They need to know what clothing to use, as well as the equipment and technical staff of the work clothes manufacturer.
In design work, computers are increasingly used.
Prototyping: After the initial design, the next step is to draw the required paper pattern according to the design pattern. The first paper pattern drawn by the original design is generally called the head or the original in the garment industry, and the head is usually a standard size or an intermediate size. The technical requirements for drawing head samples are high, and they are generally regarded as masters in the industry.
Prototype production: After the initial prototype is completed, the next step is to make a prototype according to the prototype. This procedure is generally completed in the office of the factory, which can be divided into cutting and sewing process. Prototype production usually only makes one or several pieces, so the housekeeping staff in the garment factory generally chooses more skilled technical workers, for example, the sewing workers in the house construction can usually complete the entire sewing process . When the sample is completed, if the customer's requirements cannot be met in some places, or if the customer needs to change some places or styles, the usual process needs to start from the initial sample and change the pattern and then do the sample again, which may need to be repeated Several times, the sample production is not completed until the customer is completely satisfied.
Pattern grading: After the clothing sample is accepted by customers, the next step is to draw different sizes of patterns according to customer requirements. In the work of pattern grading, the application of computer is one of the most extensive and earliest developed computer-aided design in the process of garment production.
Order the required fabrics and accessories: After the customer accepts the sample, the work clothes manufacturer needs to order the fabrics and accessories according to the required amount for production. Many workwear manufacturers have the most problems at this stage, (e.g. inaccurate estimated usage, problems with the quality and quantity of fabrics and accessories supplied by the supplier, and delayed delivery) These eventually lead to obstruction of production and delayed delivery to Customers, quality problems only occur when finished products, and serious cases may cause customers to return.
