New Software Version Release: Advisor® 7.5, the Leader in Rough Planning

By Gilad Shaham, Product Manager @Sarine

Last year, we announced the release of Advisor® 7.0, the latest version of the world’s leading Advisor rough planning software. Advisor is used globally by diamond planners and manufacturers to achieve the best possible polished yield from rough diamonds.

Advisor 7.0 included some groundbreaking new features, such as CAP, Customized Automated Planning, which enables planners to set pre-defined planning programs running 24/7 to deliver an enormous number of optimized cutting plans based on a very wide range of parameters. The  Advisor 7.0 version also included other new features, such as Customized Pricing, Tension Mapping and more.

Now, the latest update to Advisor has been released, Advisor 7.5, which includes a further range of upgrades and capabilities.

Compatibility with DiaExpert® Edge

The main new feature in Advisor 7.5 is its compatibility with the newly released DiaExpert® Edge system. DiaExpert Edge, which you can read about in this recent blog post, is the next generation in external diamond scanning, enabling unprecedented accuracy in automated scans that detect even the tiniest surface flaws and textures. Advisor 7.5 has been upgraded to enable diamond planners to work with DiaExpert Edge, together with the Advisor rough planning, to give maximum efficiency and accuracy in the entire rough planning process.

Faster planning

New algorithms in Advisor 7.5 increase productivity of the software by 10-15%, compared to the previous Advisor version! This means that diamond planners can scan more stones on any given day – it’s all about increased efficiency and yield.

Measurement setting

The new Advisor 7.5 has a function that enables Advisor administrators to lock the scanning speed, preventing the operators of DiaExpert systems from using unauthorized mapping methods.

Asymmetric planning

With Advisor 7.5, planners can work with additional fancy shapes that require asymmetric planning, such as Asscher, Pear and Marquise.

These are just some of the new features available in Advisor 7.5. To see all new features, check out the Advisor 7.5 Release Notes.
