A turn-key, make-to-order production operation head-quartered in the SADC region is seeking a digitised and/or automated technological solution for optimising the design, layout, and cutting of material. This solution should be novel and customised to the production volumes, skills levels and other unique aspects of the Client’s operation, and enable the entire operation to show immediate and significant cost savings due from reduced labour usage, faster design turnaround and set-up times, as well as reduced material wastage resulting from off-cuts and sub-optimal cutting layouts.
