The engineering department uses Pro-E to design the equipment and PEP to convert and nest parts. THE AUTOMATION…. nests such as the one in the picture below are created automatically with the PEP automatic nesting software. In the process of creating nests the PEP software schedules the job and saves the material required to the PEP inventory database as allocated. At the end of each day, the machine scheduling software produces a list of the required materials that is sent to their supplier. As nests are cut by the shop the machine scheduling software displays the current days cut nests in gray on the schedule and the inventory is closed out. The previous days cut nests are automatically removed from the schedule. The machine scheduling software displays the nest and a bar graph of the schedule for everyone to reference. “Having the ability to set reserve times in scheduling is great. This helps us account for and plan the daily rework/re-cutting needed.” “We love the ability to dynamically drag a job around to another time slot when it’s priority changes.” “Closing out jobs with accurate times allows everybody to see if we are in-time, on-track.” Machine Scheduling is a fantastic tool to help you manage your laser, plasma, flame punch and water jet cutting.
