Forecasting of Integrated Knitted Fabric Quality Metrics
The production of integrated double-layer knitted fabric with specified functional properties requires a comprehensive analysis of interaction between the parameters of a knitting process and fabric quality metrics. The problems, which consider multiple interconnected quality indicators, are solved by means of mathematical optimization and involve the use of modern computer technology.
On the basis of regression dependencies, set up experimentally, we developed a specialized computer program. It allows finding knitting parameters, which provide optimal balance between all the quality indicators of a readymade knitted fabric. The Simplex method of linear programming set up the basis for the algorithm of solution of the multi criterion optimal control problem.
