  Layout and cutting problems   are important in many industries, as they involve the
  optimal use of raw material.    Problems of optimal arrangement of 2D pieces to be
  cut from an initial piece of stock material are called nesting problems. This problem
  finds   wide   application   in   the textile manufacturing, leather cutting,    and glass
  industries,   where   material   is   costly   and   scrap   must   be   minimized.   The 2
  dimensional   cutting   stock problem is a classic combinatorial optimization problem
  in   which   a   number   of   parts   of   various   dimensions   must   be cut   from a 2
  dimensional material.    Computational results are provided that increase the ability
  of the algorithm based approach to decrease the amount of scrap generated in the
  production process.

  The Online Cutting Software   is designed for optimization of   2D materials and can
  be  used  in   wood,   metal,   glass,   and   plastic industries.   The Online AP-OCS  is
  written in language   which   allows   considerable quality   increasing   and
  shortens time for nesting plans preparation. Automatic cutting is carried out taking
  in   consideration   technological   and   organizational    parameters  of  production.
  Variable parameter allows setting the glass offcut value - the space   between the
  x-line and the z-line.  The calculation of the Online software consists of determining
  where  to  position  the  glass  parts.     The Online program  places  the  parts  in a
  top-down,  left-to-right  manner  and by  using    recursion   searches  to   find  the
  optimal layout.

  The Online software  is  especially  created  for getting perfect  layouts in the glass
  industry.   The Online program  works just  fine  with or without automated cutting
  equipment.   It is a   handy  tool  for glass cutters.  The online software is based on
  high-speed algorithm   that enables  getting   perfect  layout  with  minimal   waste.
 This website  offers a tool for solving the problem of optimal cutting of glass sheets
  into rectangular   parts. It can be used for optimizing the cutting performed by the
  guillotine method.   The program  algorithms   ensure  the   lowest glass waste and
  reduction of time for designing of cutting plans.

  Due  to  its  sophisticated,  recursive algorithm,   Online AP-OCS  finds  the optimal
 cutting  plan   with  the  best   yield   of   glass  and  it consistently delivers   the best
  cutting area.   Using AP-OCS the costs of cutting can be sensible reduced. First the
  user can save time as he can obtain the optimal yield in one   minute.   As a second
 benefit he will have the   best   cutting plan  with  less   waste of   unused glass and
  best of all, the program is easy to learn.

  This program define 3 types of cutting lines
  * X-line along the Y-axis
  * Y-line along the X-axis
  * Z-line along the Y-axis
  The distance between the X-line and the Z-line is the offcut value.
  It must be zero or greater then offcut value.
  The next figure shows the way of calculation of this program.

  Data for optimization can be imported from Excel csv file format.
  Every layout created can be exported to the Excel csv file format,
  which is a commonly used interchange format between popular
  software packages.
