Computer aided design adaptation in design and manufacturing process for Malaysia SME apparel industry: A review

Research output: Contribution to journalReview article

Abstract

Computer Aided Design (CAD) system has been reported to be one of the most important requirement for the apparel business to be successful. It is claimed to be one of the main technology adapted by most of the large garment manufacturing countries in order to performed various task in designing and manufacturing processes. Several researchers have proposed the CAD adaptation framework in various area and purposes but limited research has focused on the Small and Medium Enterprise (SMEs) in Malaysia apparel sector. In order to fill this gap, the main objective of this study is to carry out the fundamental review of information on CAD usage among the Small and Medium Enterprise (SMEs) apparel sector in Malaysia. The survey was conducted on 343 SMEs apparel owners as respondents. The finding shows that the adaptation of CAD application among the apparel SMEs in Malaysia are still in the adjustment phase and has not been able to implement 100% deployment of CAD. This is due to several factors that will be discussed in this study and the suggestion and direction for future research are also presented.
