This paper presents a customer-centric strategy for e-manufacturing in apparel industry. This strategy integrates 3D body scanning and 3D visualising techniques to allow automatic pattern alterations, based not only on human body measurements, but also on the fabrics’ dynamic properties and features. The 3D virtual try-on integration will actually present the exact idolised avatar of the customer virtually dressed. Scan data and patterns will be automatically transferred through ERP web-enabled interfaces direct to the enterprise’s manufacturing operations and facilities, and will be stored separately for each customer in order to create its ID profile which will be applicable for future purchases or reorders.
