Beyond pattern shop

Software for all users who, though they do not need design, wish to access data, enter or edit materials in the management system, manage the photographic archive, calculate requirements and costs, generate production lists, etc. Using Aimpes CAD Office means designs in the archives can be displayed as it includes a simple, separate, and economical program for this purpose.

Calculation of consumption and estimation of costs

During the design of an article, material consumption and processing costs are calculated in real time. The materials that are not represented graphically (accessories) can be inserted manually, while the pattern drawn will return the exact quantity of material necessary, which increases in accordance with 3 waste calculation phases:

  • waste due to the minimum cutting distance
  • waste due to the pattern's shape
  • waste due to the type of material

Even in this phase the classic system used in traditional design has been strictly reproduced. The possibility of intervening manually in every part of the calculation allows the system to easily adapt to the conditions of the various uses (with particular materials or manufacturing processes). The exclusive use of the 'Sets of materials in the collection' also allows all cost estimations to be performed in real time making Aimpes CAD an essential tool for the company's commercial decisions.

Generation of lists, bill of materials and reports

The program contains the most common list forms used in the leather goods industry, and it has numeric lists that can be imported into management systems and graphical lists so sketches and photos for both the articles and for the materials can be inserted. The graphic lists can be generated for both single articles and for batch production with consequent grouping of both materials and of variations.
