Abstract: Inspection is the most important role in textile industry which declares the quality of the apparel product. Many Industries were improving their production or quality using Artificial Intelligence. Inspection of fabric in textile industry takes more time and labours. In order to reduce the number of labours and time taken to complete inspection, computerized image processing is done to identify the defects. It gives the accurate result in less time, thereby saves time and increases the production. The convolutional neural network in deep learning is mainly used for image processing for defect detection and classification. The high quality images are given as input, and then the images were used to train the deep learning neural network. The woven fabric defects such as Holes, Selvedge tails, Stains, Wrong drawing and Snarls were identified by using Convolutional Neural Network. The sample images were collected from the Sky Cotex India Pvt. Ltd. The sample images were processed in CNN based machine learning in google platform; the network has a input layer, n number of hidden layer and output layer. The neural network is trained and tested with the samples and the result obtained is used to calculate the efficiency of defect identification.
