Description: Improving manufacturing efficiency and increasing product worth requires the right combination of actions throughout the manufacturing process. Many innovations have been developed over the last several decades to achieve these goals. Innovations typically work their way backwards in the manufacturing process, with an increasing level of monitoring occurring at the end of a production line. There exists, however, an ever-increasing array of tools available to forest products manufacturers that allow rapid assessment of material and product variables throughout the manufacturing process. A technology that shows great potential in all facets of material assessment is near infrared (NIR) spectroscopy.
