Measurement units

 

 

Cutting Optimization Pro uses an measurement system which is problem independent.

 

The user must input the data in the using the same measurement system for all data.

 

Example

 

            If you decide to use millimetres you must input all the data in millimetres:

                        Length and Width of the sheets in REPOSITORY.

                        Length and Width of the sheets in DEMAND.

                        Cut thickness

                        Minimal useful width

                        Minimal Width Breakage

 

 

Numerical Example - Values in millimetres

 

 

            REPOSITORY

                        3210 x 2250

                        2360 x 1900

                        ...

 

            DEMAND

                        540 x 590

                        490 x 1030

                        780 x 690

                        ...

           

            Cut thickness 1

            Minimal useful width 20

            Minimal Width Breakage 200

 

Numerical Example - Values in meters

 

            REPOSITORY

                        3.21 x 2.25

                        2.36 x 1.90

                        ...

 

            DEMAND

                        0.54 x 0.59

                        0.49 x 1.03

                        0.78 x 0.69

                        ...

           

            Cut thickness 0.001

            Minimal useful width 0.02

            Minimal Width Breakage 0.2

 

REPRESENTATION PRECISION

 

All dimensions must be less than 1 billion in the case that you work with integer numbers. If you work with real numbers you are not allowed to input more than 9 digits for a number. In the case of real numbers all these are multiplied with a scale factor in order to work with integer values only. The result must be less than 1 billion.
