What is garment engineering?

Jul 12 2012

Following the article about me in the Natwest business magazine I received an email from Morgan Gustafson to say hello after losing contact many years ago. In 1979 Morgan changed my whole perception of the clothing industry. Our factory at the time was manufacturing garments in the traditional way, the same as most UK factories at that time. We decided to engage the services of Erikson Associates who were Swedish clothing consultants and Morgan had the task of engineering the garment production and also persuding our employees and middle management that there was a more efficient way of manufacturing garments. The biggest fear we had at the time was the fear of changing from the comfort of what we had to that of something very different. The easiest way to describe garment engineering is to compare it to building a motor car. Imagine cutting out the pieces of steel and then chopping bits off to make the sections fit together. it would be logical and efficient to cut everything correctly in the first place.
