Design to Cost – a whitepaper by Lectra


Lectra Design to Cost cover

In Lectra’s latest whitepaper, the company paints a holistic and comprehensive picture of the crucial role that costing plays in all aspects of the apparel industry, and how we can work to avoid unforeseen costs.

This paper looks at the range of factors influencing garment cost – including choice of fabric, style and fit – all of which begin as estimations.  By taking a ‘Design to Cost’ approach, Lectra argue, companies of all shapes and sizes can assess these (and other) factors virtually, testing variations and adjusting patterns before making a design commitment.
