Given access to the materials inventory, CUTPLAN’s fabric roll allocation module - FABPLAN can achieve even greater material savings by determining the specific rolls to use for each cut. Considering current inventory, FABPLAN looks at all possible options for each cut order and prepares pick lists that will result in the least end loss and width loss. It will also tell you exactly where to spread/lay them and how to cut them in order to achieve those savings.
Specifically, FABPLAN incorporates the following fabric roll allocation features and capabilities:
Plan fabric roll allocation to precisely match fabric roll lengths by color/shade to cut order needs
Dramatically shrink end losses
Automatically incorporate piece goods inventory data from mainframe or other systems
Reduce amount of remnant pieces, use up existing remnants quickly

Prepare spread/lay-up plan listing optimal roll sequence and height per section for each roll
Print or send reports to production control, automatic spreaders and/or cutting room floor
