Textile Calculation: From Fibre to Finished Garment provides detailed explanations of standard numerical calculations used at different stages of garment production, including spinning, weaving, processing, garmenting and testing. At every stage, from fiber production to garment manufacturing, textile production involves the selection of fibers or filaments, yarns, machines and process parameters. The calculations involved in this work relate to requirements of machines in the process line, estimations of process parameters, process characteristics, and machine efficiency, all of which must be objective and backed by sound theory. Drawing on extensive industry experience, this book gathers these numerical problems from across the supply chain to provide best practice and appropriate solutions. With its comprehensive coverage of all parts of the textile production cycle, this book is essential reading for those preparing to enter the textile industry, as well as an invaluable reference for professionals and researchers.
