E-commerce and Made-to-Measure became almost synonyms in the past years, and obviously this will be the evolution path for on-line business in high-end garments.
At both ends of the process we can find valuable software tools to help automatize the process: the websites benefits from the latest design and user-interaction gadgets, while in garments design there are powerful CAD tools to develop the made-to-measure products .
There is however a huge gap between the moment when a new product is ready in the CAD office and the moment when it can be actually published on a web page. This gap means that information about design options, logical conditions and explicative graphic content, list of dimensional or preference inputs expected from end-user and other topics must be transmitted by the CAD designer to the WEB programmer manually, who must than transform it into a interactive web-page. This process is time consuming and expensive.
