Nesting software differ from one another by their ability to nest complex shapes in the most efficient and practical way. However, with the advancement of nesting research, the Nesting product category has reached a glass ceiling of efficiency and the various competing products differentiate each other on fractions of yield improvement.
However good or poor these nesting software are, they are all limited by design to nesting a given quantity of product on predefined material of specific length and width. Thus, Nesting software cannot and do not consider other relevant factors driven by the manufacturing reality, such as remnants available in the warehouse, material’s batch information and other incoming orders.
A Production Optimization Software that practices such a holistic approach leverages dynamic and creative optimization techniques to address production inefficiencies to generate a new level of savings.
