Abstract Nesting is a process where shapes are orientated and located on a parent substrate. Effective nesting packs the parts optimally and maximizes the remnant on the substrate. The paper describes how Simulated Annealing was made to operate effectively as the optimisation process on aerospace components. Key issues affecting the use of Simulated Annealing are described. The methods described were integrated into a software package and applied to the Aerospace Industry. The method operated in real time and produce quality nesting solutions.
