Size Menu

The Size Menu provides functions to deal with the sizing of clothing items and the selection of clothing items for a range of scans. There is also the ability to compare the results of the size selection process with the actual size that was issued. Currently, the sizing feature work only with Whole Body scan files.

Form...

The Size Form can be used to demonstrate the automated size selection process. All the measurements required for the selected size table name (clothing item) will be retrieved from the database for the current scan subject. Any measurements that have not already been stored in the database will be extracted from the current scan subject. Adjustment factors are defined in a file that resides in the same directory as the selected size tables.

A user may enter manual measurements into the Size Form, then use the Fit Sizes button to test the size selection process. Simply select the appropriate Size Table (Coat, Shirt, Trouser), enter all of the manual measurements into the measurement text entry areas, then click the Fit Sizes button.

The Ease function is not currently used.

Size Selection Example

To initiate the size selection, choose the desired size table and clothing item(s). Then, press the Fit Sizes button to choose sizes.

Batch...

The Batch function automatically processes the selected size tables for an entire set of scans. To use this function, the user must select from a list of all the scan subjects in the current project database that have been classified as good. The initial list of size table names is based on the size tables setting that is specified for the current project.

The DigiSize user can specify which size table names are to be sized to the scan subjects. The best fit clothing sizes are stored in the database where they can be displayed at a later time using the Size Statistics function or the Database View function.

This menu item is available only to DigiSize developers.

DigiSize extracts the appropriate measurements for each size table as needed. Previously-stored measurements will be used if they are available. Previously stored clothing sizes will not be updated unless the Replace Sizes option is selected from the Options menu (in the Batch window) or the RS (Replace Sizes) checkbox is selected. After running Size Batch, the user will be asked to rebuild the statistics file.

Demo mode demonstrates the Size Batch process without storing the results.

Statistics...

Size Statistics compares the clothing sizes of size table names selected by DigiSize with the clothing sizes that were actually issued. The data is acquired from the statistics file.

The list of size table names is determined by the setting of the current project's Size Tables. Many clothing items have multiple "components". For example, a shirt has a neck and a sleeve length, trousers have a waist and a length, etc. The comparisons are for a single component, one at a time. Some clothing sizes which are non-numeric are represented numerically to simplify comparisons. For example, small, medium, and large would be represented as 1, 2, and 3 respectively.

The "Component Summary" in Options menu of the Size Statistics window shows the number and percentage of correct and incorrect selections. Correct is defined as: the selected clothing size is same size or 1 size larger that the size that is issued (except for the coat chest which is within 1 size plus or minus). In the "Garment Summary" in the Options menu of the Size Statistics window, correct is defined as the clothing sizes of all components of the garment were correct as defined above.

A histogram provides a graphic display of the differences for a quick overview. For each bucket in the histogram, there is a pop-up menu which lists all the scans that fell into that bucket. Selecting an entry from the pop-up menu opens that scan file, making it easy to inspect the scan data for certain results.

This menu item is available only to DigiSize developers.

Performance...

This menu item displays the total number of scans and the number of groups that were scanned. This function will also present the actual, adjusted and maximum number of scans per hour.

This menu item is available only to DigiSize developers.

The actual scan rate is a simple computation based on the elapsed time between the first scan and last scan time in a day and the number of scans performed that day.

The "adjusted" scan rate refines the computation by filtering out instances where there is a delay of more than 100 seconds, which can occur when there is a change of group or some other non-scanning or operator interruption.

The "maximum" scan rate computes an hourly rate based on the minimum recorded time interval between scans as an indicator of what kind of performance is achievable.

In addition, the average number of fits per hour is displayed. This is the number of subjects that were processed for body measurement extraction and uniform size selection.

The checkboxes at the top of each column determine which statistics will be represented in the bar graph on the right of the window. The initial screen shows results by year. Clicking on a year will bring up another screen with the breakdown by month of the figures for that year. Clicking on a month will show the breakdown by day of the figures for that month.

Report...

Size Report is used to display and save formatted reports using information from the project database for an entire set of selected scans. The Report Name is determined by the current project's Size Tables setting. Reports are created by Cyberware according to specific customer requirements.

Export...

This selection allows the user to export the size table data (clothing items) from the project database to a tab delimited ASCII text file. This type of file may be viewed in any text editor or in a spreadsheet. A user can select which measurements to export, including traditional (manual) measurements and imported measurements.

File Filter

The filters allow a user to select a limited range of scans that will be available in the file listing. This is helpful if the user would like to work with a particular Group or ID, rather than the entire database. The pop-up allows for the rapid selection of All scans, a Group of scans, a particular ID or scans from a specific date or range of dates. The filter text establishes the parameters for each selection.

Manual Entry...

Manual Entry is used to enter issued clothing sizes into the current project database and store the information. This data can be compared against the automatically-selected clothing sizes by using the Size Statistics tool.

This menu item is available only to DigiSize developers.

Size Editor...

The Size Editor tool allows Cyberware developers to use a graphical editor to create and modify size tables, based upon the requirements provided by customers. The Size Edit tool is available to customers to view their size tables. However, this is not recommended since customer changes to the tables will be lost in subsequent releases of the DigiSize software.

The setting of the Size Tables variable in the Project Manager is used to determine which Size Tables can be opened for viewing in each project.
