A Comparison of Approaches for Predicting Multiple-Product Yields from Weight-Scaling Data

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

Alternative systems of equations for predicting individual and aggregate product yields from truckload weight-scaling data were developed and tested using data from Champion International's Building Products Division mill at Newberry, South Carolina. The three systems compared were: (a) a multiple-regression system where aggregate yields are predicted first, (b) a recursive system, and (c) a simultaneously interdependent system of equations. Results showed little difference between the three approaches, but the simultaneously interdependent system was slightly superior. Forest Sci. 30:991-998.
