The article describes the design, operating principle, and the application of the EMRT-2 electronic computer program unit in the sewing industry in the computation of fabric-cutting operations. A modified model of the unit has been developed and has been in series production since 1964 at the Kiev Plant for Electronic Computer and Control Equipment. The purpose of the machine is to provide automatic and optimal solutions to problems arising in fabric-cutting operations piece length economy, inventory considerations, remnant minimization, etc.. Intermediate step decisions are also possible with operator intervention. The mathematics involved in the determination of the optimal cutting plan is described. The machine has a operating speed of 100,000 addition-type operations per second, and consists of a control input unit, control unit, data base and pulse shaper unit, combination unit, arithmetic unit, signal unit, and power supply.
