Optimisation

Orders are colour coded to assist with selection for production. Different colours indicate when orders are due for production.

Labels can be produced for Harp Racks and Slots at the batching stage.

When selecting sheet types for optimisation, the cutting table target can be changed and each sheet type's stock accessed.

When selecting order lines, many optimisations can be done for the same sheet type. Extra parts can be inserted into a list for optimisation along with commonly produced sizes.

Extra stock sizes can be added to a list of stock available for optimisation.

To cancel an optimisation and try another sheet size takes just two keystrokes.

The new generation optimiser maximises offcut size on the last pattern.

For high volume work where line quantities are large (typically 30 or more parts per order line), the optimisation algorithms can produce cutting patterns that give shorter cutting and breakout times compared to the best European optimisers. Savings of 10% and higher are possible on some patterns. That translates into greater cutting table throughput in the same time.

Optimisation results are comparable to those produced by the best optimisers, with some cutting lists up to 3% more efficient when using more than one stock width and when using high quantities with a small number of sizes.

Optimisation analysis shows how many cuts per part were required on average and how efficient the overall result was in terms of total cutting distance used.

No dongles are required for the optimiser. Optimisation can be performed from any workstation.
