The main purpose of Material Cut Length Optimization for Excel is to find how to cut linear raw materials (bars, pipes, beams, wires, etc.) in order to minimize the material waste and resulting production costs.

A common approach taken in construction is to cut largest length of raw materials first and then smaller ones in order to reduce waste. This approach is not necessarily optimal and on average 10-20% of the material is wasted.
