Abstract : Research has been carried out to design and develop a generic architecture for an apparel enterprise that can serve as a blueprint for a computer integrated apparel enterprise (CIAE). The Apparel Manufacturing Architecture (AMA) the first comprehensive architecture for manufacturing has been developed and validated in close collaboration with the apparel industry. AMA consists of a set of models the core of which is the information model which defines the schema of the shared information base for an apparel enterprise. The function model component of the architecture specifies how the activities carried out in an apparel manufacturing enterprise interact with each other through the shared information base. The third component of AMA, the dynamics model, describes how the interactions among the enterprise activities take place over time. The Recruit Induction Center Architecture (RICA) models the uniform distribution process at the Recruit Induction Center (RIC).
