Abstract: Functional clothing are actually engineered textiles as they require to meet the stringent performance characteristics rather than the aesthetic properties. Therefore, the trial and error approach of product design does not seem to be a viable way for functional clothing. It needs more potent approaches of modelling, optimization and decision making so that the design and functional requirements of clothing can be met with acceptable tolerance. This paper provides a brief outline of various techniques of modelling, optimization and decision making intended for designing of functional clothing. In the modelling part, regression and artificial neural network approaches have been discussed with the examples of thermal property and water repellency modelling. Subsequently, linear programming and genetic algorithm techniques have been invoked in the optimization part. Optimization of ultraviolet radiation protective clothing is taken up as a case study. Finally, multi-criteria decision making techniques have been explained with the hypothetical example of selection of best body armour vest for defense applications.
