What is the definition of Benchmarks?

The purpose of a benchmark is to see how the software performs with your parts and to determine the savings in dollars over your current operations. This step is important to the financial justification for the purchase of the software. All of our customers receive at least 100% return on their investment in the first year.

A benchmark is a free test run of Optimation® software using your parts, your materials, and due dates. We'll benchmark on any of your fabrication processes - laser, turret punch, waterjet, router, or knife. There is no cost for this service. With a benchmark you can compare the cost savings of our nesting solution results side by side with your current solution.

Benchmark Process

The process is simple. We ask for a representative sample of your parts, i.e. dxf files with due dates and material sizes. (All information is kept in the utmost confidence.) Also, it's important to know what machines you're running, so we can do a like comparison using the same processes accounting for tooling, stack height, etc. Then we run Optimation automatic programming and nesting software and create nests and part programs for your parts, simulating Optimation solution in your shop. Again, there is no charge for a benchmark.

We'll schedule a brief online meeting to review the results with you. And you can see for yourself the difference Optimation software can make on your material efficiency and programming time. At the end of the meeting, you can have the summary reports and nest layouts to review and use in your financial justification to management.

Black & White Decision Making Tools

We encourage you to use the reports to calculate with accuracy the projected savings, return on investment, and breakeven point of an investment in Optimation software. It's a rare opportunity to know with this clarity the savings impact of your decision before you make it. It's a no-risk opportunity that is hard to pass up. In fact, customers often justify the investment on material savings alone. All the other time, throughput, and overhead savings, are just a bonus!
