Many production companies are often preparing cutting layouts with traditional methods – by drawing templates on paper, or directly onto the first layer of the material. It is not only a very tedious, labour-intensive, and time-consuming process but also often it allows such mistakes as omitting some elements or using too much material.
It generates other problems, such as cutting the missing elements or problems with billing of, for example, material given by the client (in case of contract companies).An alternative for this method is using Optitex CutPlan app, which combined with other Optitex module – Mark and Nest, ensures integration of planning system for every step of the production in the cutting room. The aforementioned modules allow for order’s preparation to production and cutting in a very short time while optimising the use of material and work time in the cutting room at the same time. Optitex CutPlan and the automatic systems created by the Nest modules mean reduction of used materials and saving on average from 2% to 5% of the material. Using this solution guarantees accurate planning while excluding human mistakes, shortens the order’s planning time and, what follows, the time of delivery to the final receiver. Additionally, using the Optitex Roll Manager app guarantees control over fabric storage. On every step of work with Optitex CutPlan the obtained data may be exported to an Excel file and then printed, which gives the ability to create full technical and technological documentation.
