SATRASumm software controls, predicts and monitors all aspects of material usage. It is suitable for both leather and synthetic materials.
The system produces achievable allowances which can be used both for costing and in production. It creates cutting tickets, synthetic layplans and a full analysis of all completed work.
Users build up a database of knife details, material details and the cut parts required for the product. Knife shapes can be entered with a digitiser and/or by importing them from your existing CAD system.
SATRASumm uses two unique methods of automatically interlocking knife shapes: one for leather and another for synthetics. Together with information from the database, this allows the rapid calculation of accurate material allowances — estimates of how much material is needed to make the product.
These allowances are presented in a variety of ways leading to complete cutting tickets (with material allowances) for the actual combination of knives and sizes to be cut. The allowances are achievable. The full package includes Leather Cutter Training to teach your leather cutters how to meet the SATRASumm allowances.
Once cutting is complete, reports to analyse cutter performance, material usage and pattern efficiency can be generated.
Cutting Times Module
An optional ‘Cutting Times module’, for realistic production planning, can be added. This uses calculations from a sister system to provide accurate predictions of the time required to complete a job.
