Simulation of Lumber Processing for Improved Raw Material Utilization
Robert C. Byrd Hardwood Technology Center R.R. 2, Box 556 Princeton, WV 24740, U.S.A. Lumber processing simulation allows the user an opportunity to examine ways to best utilize the many grades of lumber available to the user. It is most important that the simulation must be able to accurately model the processing plant steps and be capable of obtaining the desired part sizes in the correct quantities. This gives management the ability to increase production and reduce costs associated with lost yield. Flow simulation allows the user to try out different plant layout scenarios as well as engineer a plant prior to construction.
