This demonstration program is a simplified version of a system already in use at a textile factory and employs our visual drag and drop scheduling component system for Borland Delphi, which is used to represent individual looms in the factory. The purpose of the system is to experiment with various loom loading scenarios, comparing their requirements and outputs to arrive at the optimal solution for achieving the production targets with the available raw materials in an efficient manner (eg: minimizing the number of reed changes). Also, the rules built into the program and database go a long way to preventing costly errors with the various yarn combinations, etc.
