- Familiarizing with Statistical View
Following general Nesting report presentation, you will be able to download the report details as well as having a view of the above report as statistical graphs. For this, click on ( ) icon:
Fig. 152 – (Global Graph Report)
The graphs you receive will be different depending on what topic your Nesting request has been on. You will view a summary of all the required items together in (Global View) graph. Blue rods indicate the amount of Stock materials while the red rods indicate the amount of required ones. Be aware that considering the notable difference of each size’s amounts from one another, the graph’s left axis is set base on logarithmic division so as to express more clearly. In this case, for example, 1/8” rods (of which less than 10 kilograms is needed) are portrayed clearly on the graph in comparison to 48” rods (of which more than 10,000 kilograms is needed)! Thus, you have to notice that the rods’ heights will be valid for comparing the amounts of each size’s Stock and Required merely. In addition to statistical observation, you can also view dimensional data of the report’s constituent pieces in Grid area.
You can change the rods’ colors as you desire by right clicking on the graph.

Moving the mouse on rods, you can view their numerical amounts.

Size x Schedule shows items from all sizes next to one another. You can view each size’s Schedule distribution by the use of this graph.

Size x Material shows each size’s material distribution. You can gain mastery over the variety of materials used in your project by the aid of this graph.
Fig. 156 – (Size x Material Graph)
The most important graph in this category is Size x Material x Schedule graph. You can view and (if interested) put into action what has been explained regarding the most important achievement of Nesting in the previous section. In the graph above, for instance, Sch 20 red rod (which indicates this Sch’s required mount) is shorter than Sch 30 green rod (which indicates this Sch’s remaining amount). Therefore, you can easily decide to remove Sch 20 purchase and use Sch 30 waste by changing all 20”-Sch20 pipes. Economical privileges of this substitution contains so much profit that no need for explanations is felt. You can control this process for all sizes by selecting the desired size and material from the drop downs lists. Note that the left axis of this graph is not logarithmic; so, in addition to optical conformity of rods’ heights in comparison to one another, you can get informed of the rods’ numerical amounts by moving the mouse on them.

You can prepare a print report out of your graphs by getting access to the Print icon on the graphs’ upper bar.
