Optimize cuts and stock lengths to save on material costs.
WinBidPro v15.9: Optimizer Overhaul
With version 15.9 came a complete makeover of the Optimizer window.
New features include:
Powerful sorting and grouping capability
Real-time updates to the cut list as elevations are created or modified
Sorting the Cut and Stock Lists
Sorting by one or multiple columns
The cut list can be sorted by any column in ascending or descending order.
To do this, click the column you want to sort by. The cut list will be sorted in ascending or descending order indicated by the black arrow above the column name.
You can also sort by multiple columns by Shift+Clicking additional columns
Grouping by Multiple Columns
You can also group your cuts by multiple columns by dragging additional column names to the area above.
Each column you add will be a subgroup of the previous column you added. For example, here we first group by Elevation, then we create a subgroup within each Elevation group for Component Type.
Adding a Cut
To add a cut to the cut list,
Click "Add Cut" button at the bottom of the Optimizer window
In the pop-up window, choose a part then click the "Select Part" button
Specify a quantity and cut length
Click "Add to Cut List".
Cuts that have been added manually will be blue in the cut list. They will also be classified as "Added" under the "State" column.
Modifying a Cut
You can modify a cut by either changing its quantity, its cut length, or its elevation code. In this example we change the quantity of a cut.
To do this, click the field you would like to modify, type in a new value then hit the Enter key.
Modified cuts will be bolded in the cut list, and will be classified as "Modified" under the "State" column.
