In construction projects, one problem that is often encountered is the large amount of fraction of reinforcing steel caused by cutting. This study focuses on finding a method of reducing waste from the cutting. In regard to this problem, the study has considered two software options for optimization of rebar – RGS REBAR and linear programming using Excel Solver. The effectiveness of RBS REBAR and Excel Solver is evaluated using the case of Embassy Manyata, a Tech Park in a Bangalore SEZ. The evaluation included material and cost savings as well as their contribution to enhancement of the construction process.
