dc.description.abstract Standard dimensional stability test methods have higher lead times. In a manufacturing environment a dimensional stability test method with shorter lead time is an option provided under some international standards. Such test methods have been developed based on one specific machine designed exclusively for this purpose. As a solution, an alternative test procedure was developed in an existing washing machine for industrial use. The Miele automatic front loading washing machine was selected for this research. A washing and drying procedure developed with 30-minute washing procedure and 30-minute tumble drying procedure. This research related only to 100% cotton single jersey products. The key features of the BS EN ISO 6330:2012 washing and drying procedure was compared with those of the proposed washing and drying procedure. A pilot run with five samples was done with three different weights against proposed washing and drying procedure for conditioned, unconditioned states and BS EN ISO 6330:2012 washing and drying procedure. Thirty samples were tested in one material to confirm the consistency of the new washing and drying procedure. Twelve samples representing four different GSM values were tested according to BS EN ISO 6330:2012 and proposed washing and drying procedure and a satisfactory correlation was obtained. en_US
