Apparel product development has so many pieces of paper. Each tech pack demands much of you: POMs; measurements (body, pattern, and garment); jumps (relative and incremental); grade rules (for us relative only); flats and scaled flats; creation of your own spec sheets; shrinkage information; tolerances; costing; cut order planning; and more.  Are you on target?
