A Solution Procedure for the Sort Yard Location Problem in Forest Operations
Abstract:Sort yards placed at selected intermediate points between timber cutting sites and mills have potential for increasing the value of logs or trees destined for processing into different products. A two-phase modeling procedure is presented for identifying the efficient placement of sort yards using computations much simpler than those in standard linear mixed-integer programming methods. For. Sci. 33(3):750-762.
