One of the key points where re-building the entire software was really important was the Size Set, which is one of the most complicated and critical part of garments developing. We started from basic needs such as the need to manage multiple grading types, combined with grading groups, followed by the need to manage sizes (add, insert, delete, alter) and the need to differentiate names (alias) from the numerical properties of a grade. Gemini’s new Size Set system is based on numerical indexes and aliases which allow all above mentioned operations to be handled in simple, logical and easy to understand way. We realized that instead of trying to explain to a garments designer what is a “cartesian product” or “disjoint sets”, it is much better to provide a visual way to understand these concepts and work with them.
At this point, we can claim that Gemini’s way of handling all the problems related to the size set management is the top on the market and will define the industry’s standard for the coming years.
