Virtual Collaborative Design Environment
Start date: Sep 1, 2008,
End date: Aug 31, 2011
Eco-Tex-Design has for overall objective to develop a platform supporting a “Knowledge Based Collaborative 3D Virtual Design” dedicated to the Clothing & Leather/Footwear SMEs. The adding value of this project will consist of the integration of decision making supports derived from a knowledge based environment related to performance as well as to environmental, health and toxicological regulations, standards and labels. The Eco-Tex-Design project will therefore focus on two main objectives addressing the design process and at a lesser extend, a third one focusing on production framework and future mass customisation. These objectives will consist of: 1. A “Collaborative 3D Virtual Design Platform” providing users with information and tools as well as an integration framework including all the main components to be developed within the project. 2. A new knowledge environment based on a five data sets and on the customer demand and/or specifications. It will be interacting with legacy 2D CAD and new 3D CAD systems and linked to the collaborative platform. It will include: An EHS Decision Making Toolbox and a Performance Evaluation Module 3. A “Production Organisation Framework” based on the concept of “extended factory” enabling a fast reaction to the new trends. Itwill include: a partnership network and a Data sheets generator based on historic of data sheets. For achieving these objectives, Eco-Tex-Design will address the whole design process.
