The objective of the centre is to provide measurement, testing and interpretation services to the textile, clothing and retailing industries, using the technologies resulting from many years of innovative research work, carried out at the University of Bradford. The unique systems employed measure fabric parameters objectively. These measurements are analyzed and interpreted to determine optimum manufacturing parameters to produce quality products for a competitive market. The project has recognised the importance of objectively quantifying products and processes, and their interpretation in a traditionally skills-oriented industry, where subjectivity hinders its future development. Technological innovations in which the group at COMIT has contributed in recent years have provided instrumentation measurement systems and procedures which can enable the industry to increase quality, added value, production efficiency, waste minimization and sustainability, to compete globally and penetrate newly emerging markets. To that effect COMIT is preparing our local industry to make best use of the technology, and it also feeds back industrial requirements to the EU committee.
