Please take Print Out of Every Step, including this page before commencing Learn. Take a Yellow Marker Pen and Mark the Learning Process while Proceeding further. This is Essential for Learning. A Working example is also given on our web site. Down load the Working Example. 
Again Practice Software using working example.
The software Optimizes the Steel cutting Lengths, 
{using Fabrication Drawing}
as per the given standard  Length of Member.

Only One Std. Length of Member shall be indicated during Project Creation.

The Software cannot Optimize using more than one Std. Lengths of Reinforcements. Usual Standard Length of Member is say 12000 MM.
Basically following steps are needed to Optimize the given 
    Fabrication Drawing.
1. Create New Project and give a file name.
2. Add Fabrication Drawing Records or Import From CSV File. 
    A CSV file is Comma Separated Value format obtained from EXCEL sheets. 
    Any Excel File can be saved as CSV format by SAVE AS option. 
    The Name of this File shall be same as that of File created using 
    NEW Project option, else error will be generated.
3. Run Display / Add / Edit option and correct any errors Flagged.
4. Now Run Optimize option.

5. Under Display option, view the Optimized File.

That's all.
Note that Optimized Steel are Grouped as per Member Markings. It is very important to give correct Member Mark / Code. In any given SET the summation of cutting lengths of all the Members marked shall not be exceed std. length. 
The software indicates wastages after optimization under Each category of Steel Section as well as total wastages. The wastage lengths also includes cutting Lengths greater than 2000 MM. Normally cutting Lengths exceeding 2000 MM are not included in wastages as they are consumed in subsequent construction.

The gross % wastage can vary between 4 to 8.5 % depending up on file 
tonnage, number of records and random distributing of steel cutting lengths 
within the file.

Sections eligible for optimization are 28 in Nos :-

MC 75 / MC 100 / MC 125 / MC 150 / MC 175 / MC 200 / MC 250 / MC 300 / 
MC 350 / MC 400
MB 100 / MB 125 / MB 150 / MB 175 / MB 200 / MB 250 / MB 300 / MB 350 / 
MB 400 / 
MB 450 / MB 500 / MB 600

File Containing Larger no. of Records, will consume more time to process. 
It is recommended to split files in to manageable entities.
In Addition to Optimization, Waste Removal Program is also included with the software. In order to remove wastages, a waste file shall be created. An internal waste file is automatically created when Display / Create Internal Waste File option is run. 
Facility is also provided to import external waste file in CSV Format.
When Waste Removal is executed both the main Fabrication File and Waste Files are reduced to the extent the wastages are consumed.
Important Points Regarding Fabrication Drawing Schedule.

1. Nos cannot be < = 0.

2. Member Length cannot be < = 0.0 & Member Length cannot be > 12000 MM.

3. Same Member Mark for Different Section not permitted.

4. Same Member Mark for Different Cut Length not permitted.

5. Member mark / code Shall be Unique, corresponding to 
    Each Member Section & Length.

6. Cutting Length of Each Member shall be in MM.

7. Nos indicate total numbers of Member corresponding 
     to each unique Member mark.
Minimum Computer RAM memory of 2 GB is recommended.
Use Laser OR Ink Jet Printer.
