Purpose - Jacquard woven fabrics are widely used in various sections of upholstery industry, where mattress cover is one of them. Strength of jacquard woven mattress fabric depends on several factors. The objective of this study is to model the multi-linear relationship between fibre, yam and fabric parameters on the strength of fabric using artificial neural network (ANN) and Taguchi design of experiment (TDOE) methodologies.
