Abstract
In an effort to promote the adoption of manufacturing strategies that more closely match the Eastern resource supply, simulation work was conducted with SAWSIM to investigate the benefits of implementing innovative conversion technologies such as: computer optimized bucking (COB), curve sawing technology, and cant optimization technology.
Simulation results for COB clearly indicate that the implementation of computer optimized bucking generates significantly better volume and value recovery than achievable from operator derived bucking solutions.
Comparison of curve sawing and cant optimization simulation results show that both technologies have the potential to improve present efficiency levels by at least 10 percent.
