Optimum harvester cutting parameters
Profit variance analysis is a term coined by HALCO to describe a procedure that involves a detailed comparison of actual and planned operations and net income for each sawmill production run.
A production run may be defined by an accounting period such as a week or a month, or it ma...
HALCO developed the SETGEN™ system for generating optimized set tables for primary-breakdown machines that do not use real-time scanning and optimization. From experience, we found that a good, optimized set table often gives better results than a poorly designed or maintained real-time system.
The OSB model that forms part of the PANELSIM™ program is an economic model of an OSB mill that takes a similar approach to that used for plywood and LVL mill optimization. The objective is to calculate the combination of raw materials, mill operation and mix of OSB panel sizes, thicknesses and grades that maximi...
