Mass customization in the clothing sector is one proven solution to overcome the overall difficult market development in that industry. Nowadays there are well established made-to-measure processes that technically work but often are time consuming and error prone. Introducing 3-D body scanning intelligently supports the made-to-measure ordering and manufacturing processes by decreasing process time and increasing process stability.
Human Solutions together with its partner Odermark Bekleidungswerke Brinkmann developed and successfully implemented a seamless integration of body scanning technology from the point of sales to the cutting room. Retailers using it confirming that the technology and the underlying business model work.
In near future the present process chain will be expanded by already existing virtual try-on simulation software towards a 3-D draping solution allowing consumers to immediately see themselves dressed in customized garments of their liking.
