Abstract:Scheduling yard-to-mill woodflows requires the regular attention of wood procurement managers. While the calculations are routine, they are sufficiently time consuming to preclude evaluation of more than a first-guess schedule. A computer program implemented on a microcomputer provides a cost-effective means of doing the calculations and choosing an operationally feasible least-cost solution to the scheduling problem.
