Several microcomputer-based programs have recently been developed for analyzing harvesting system cost and production problems. This paper evaluates and provides comparative information on three such programs: Auburn Harvesting Analyzer; Harvesting System Analyzer; and Harvesting System Simulator. A description of each program is presented, and the programs are tested using data from a mechanized tree-length system. Results of the analysis of these three programs compare closely with each other, and computed cost per cord was only slightly higher than an industry average for a similar system. South. J. Appl. For. 12(1):37-41.
