Description: Three computer programs are presented which can be applied by individual firms to establish a weight-scaling information system, The first generates volume estimates from truckload weights for any combination of veneer, sawmill, and pulpwood volumes. The second provides quality-control information by tabulating differences between estimated volumes and observed check-scale volumes. The third produces weight estimates from volumes and generates tables that can be used to relate back to stumpage sales and current harvesting operations. The system depends upon regression analysis.
