OVERVIEW

Which cutting pattern provides the greatest yield and minimum trim loss from a master source (e.g., how to manufacture furniture legs from wood stock)?

OPTIMAL STOCK CUTTING applications enable users to determine how to deploy resources to meet specified requirements at the lowest cost. Savings are typically 3% or more of total resource costs.

An implementation of the OPTIMAL STOCK CUTTINGapplication is the minimum cost selection of cutting templates for steel bars to yield various lengths of finished steel product bar requirements considering trim loss.

OPTIMAL STOCK CUTTING applications address many manufacturing industries with material reduction requirements.
