It displays the stretch points and other areas where amendment is required to the garment spec itself.

All High street brands have core styles for every season that re-runs for years, often the sampling process for these styles are quite lengthy starting from Initial Design, Design review to Line Adoption, Fit and Sealer Samples. In the Past this Process takes approximately 3 to 4 months and now it has been shortened to 2 months and less to improve leadtime. Can this technology reduce the leadtime further ?
