Abstract (Summary)
KOBANER, CAN. Economic Analysis of using MEMS technology for monitoring warp tension and breaks in weaving. (Under the direction of Dr. George L. Hodge and Dr. Abdelfattah Seyam). Micro-electro-mechanical-systems (MEMS) comprise a range of technologies that enable the fabrication of micron-sized, solid state devices such as sensors and actuators. MEMS manufacturing technologies enable the development of many exciting micro-scale or micro miniaturized products. This paper presents a decision model for evaluating the potential cost/benefit of different applications of MEMS for textiles. The objective is to determine the feasibility of replacing current warp tension measurement methods with MEMS. In order to accomplish this goal, a literature survey was conducted to document the current economic models and cost justification issues as well as the fundamentals of
