The goal of this multi-year project is to develop the QUALITY CONTROLLER, a single portable data recorder containing several independent quality control computer programs. To achieve this goal, the specific objectives of this year were: 1- to deliver an enhanced lumber size control program, 2- to add modules which will enable the user to determine cant widths, planer depths of cut drying tolerances, daily monitoring, and the benefits of controlling sizes, and 3- to deliver the documentation in English and French for the enhanced lumber size program.
Sawmilling - Quality Control - Computerized Process Control
Virtually all mills located in Canada have at least considered, or implemented scanning technology. Scanning not only enables mills to ensure that closer to optimum recovery and productivity is obtained, but it also avails the opportunity to manage more efficiently operations and provide a basis for quality and operations control.
