Title: CROMAX : a crosscut-first computer simulation program to determine cutting yield

Author: Giese, Pamela J.; Danielson, Jeanne D.;

Date: 1983

Source: Gen. Tech. Rep. FPL-38. Madison, WI: U.S. Dept. of Agriculture, Forest Service, Forest Products Laboratory: 39 pages

Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: CROMAX simulates crosscut-first, then rip operations as commonly practiced in furniture manufacture. This program calculates cutting yields from individual boards based on board size and defect location. Such information can be useful in predicting yield from various grades and grade mixes thereby allowing for better management decisions in the rough mill. The computer program CROMAX was written in ASCII FORTRAN on the University of Wisconsin’s UNIVAC 1100/80 computer. The complete program listing is included as an appendix.

Keywords: Crosscut, rip, cutting yields, defect location, lumber grades, rip sawing, management, sawmilling, computer software, simulation, wood defects, CROMAX (computer program), cross cutting, lumber recovery studies, computer programs, saws and sawing, model investigations
