How long does it take to research new nesting software?

Researching Nesting Software

Don’t you just hate it when you ask a seemingly straight-forward question, and you get a waffle-y answer like “it depends?”  I think that’s frustrating, too.  But as we know life isn’t always black and white.  And as to the question, how long does it take to research nesting software, the answer really is, “it depends.”

I will cut to the chase and give you a time frame of three to nine  months up front.  But in all fairness to manufacturers, the vendors, and the process, I need to flesh this answer out a bit to make it more constructive for everyone.

There are a number of factors that strongly influence the amount of time it takes to research and purchase nesting software.  Let’s take a look at a few, and you can use this as a checklist to plan accordingly when and if you should take on a nesting software research project.

How to Justify a Nesting Software Purchase

Building a Justification for Nesting Software

Building a Justification for Nesting Software

Most project managers we meet tasked with investigating a nesting software purchase inevitably come to the point of making a case – formally or informally – about why the software should be purchased.

The project managers are typically engineers or engineering managers who have first hand experience with the nesting software.  So they are inclined to seek a solution that meets their technical needs – does it work the way I need it to?

However, and as most eventually discover, there is a second line of justification equally important to be addressed.

I’ll break down the two ways to make a case for nesting software here. Read more …

How to Financially Justify a Nesting Software Purchase

Cost Justifying a Nesting Software Purchase

Most project managers we meet, who are tasked with investigating a nesting software purchase, inevitably come to the fork in the research road where they need to make a case for the software to the boss.  Those who come equipped to management with an argument for why and how the nesting software will pay for itself in a short period of time, come out ahead for their efforts.

The question then becomes, how does the nesting software pay for itself?  Or you may be asking, really, can the nesting software pay for itself?  The answer to both questions unfolds several ways.

We’ll break the ways to make that case for cost-justification down here. Read more …
