Description: Spreadsheet and simulation models are tools which enable users to analyze a large number of variables affecting hardwood material utilization and profit in a systematic fashion. This paper describes two spreadsheet models; SEASaw and SEAIn, and a hardwood sawmill simulator. SEASaw is designed to estimate the amount of conversion from timber to lumber, while SEAIn is a log inventory module. The two spreadsheet modules are currently being interfaced and linked to an integrated system which will be optimized under the same spreadsheet environment. The simulator has the capability to describe in real time, the system performance of a hardwood sawmill under any specified operating conditions.
