Lectra Upgrades Optiplan Software

Lectra, a Paris-based technology solutions provider for soft goods applications, has upgraded its Optiplan cut-order planning and optimizing software. According to the company, the algorithm-based software can be used with the latest processes to significantly reduce material use and optimize production processes, enabling improved cost accuracy and production efficiency.

Lectra reports the software allows complete integration of the various cutting-room technologies, including enterprise resource planning, and computer-aided design and manufacturing, into a single process. It can be combined with a fabric management system to define marker lists based on what material is in stock.

The software also allows producers to project the impact vis-à-vis cost and time of various planning and manufacturing scenarios.
