Abstract

This paper describes the collaborative workflow and the advantages ofan asset team structure in developing multidisciplinary solutions to solve design problems. In particular, a multidisciplinary asset team comprised of Central Michigan University faculty members joined forces in an effort to explore technological solutions to improve the development of mass-customizable next-to-skin (NTS) apparel, using a 3D body scanner, an infrared imaging system, a walk-in environmental chamber and supporting software to create a database consisting of thermal distributions of the human torso. This paper describes the workflow used to accomplish this result, primarily the engineering and computer science workflow.
