Lectra, the world leader in integrated technology solutions dedicated to the soft goods industries, announces the new version of Optiplan, the most powerful and comprehensive cut-order planning and optimizing software.

Thanks to Optiplan's new features, manufacturers in the fashion and furniture markets can successfully combine extraordinarily powerful, algorithm-based software with the most up-to-date process methodologies to significantly optimize production processes and material utilization from the planning stage through to the production floor.

As a result, they will considerably maximize cost accuracy and dramatically increase efficiency to improve their profitability.

Today, optimization of processes in the cutting room is a key factor for apparel and furniture producers, as well as for industrial fabrics users.

Optiplan is the best solution to fully integrate the cutting room's “islands of technology” into one unique process, incorporating ERP, plotting, CAD and CAM systems to accelerate planning, costing and cutting processes.

When combined with a fabric management system, Optiplan's algorithm-based automatic planning feature allows the definition of marker lists according to the availability of material from stock. Manufacturers can easily enter, edit and view fabric roll information in order to improve the efficiency of material usage.

“Optiplan allows us to do our costing and our control of the yield to havethe leading edge over those who are not using it as a tool. It is definitely a tool to be used in every cutting room,” said Andrew Sia, Chairman and CEO, ACE Style Group, one of Asia's largest manufacturers of intimate apparel.

Today, manufacturers operate in a very competitive business environment that makes it increasingly difficult to achieve profit objectives. Optiplan is the most efficient solution to fulfill an order and achieve material savings of up to 5%, sometimes even more.
