Publication Series: General Technical Report (GTR)

Description: The DEP computer program is a modified discounted cash flow computer program designed for analysis of problems involving economic analysis of wood drying processes. Wood drying processes are different from other processes because of the large amounts of working capital required to finance inventories, and because of relatively large shares of costs charged to inventory insurance and tax. DEP’s flexibility allows calculation of rate of return, break-even transfer prices, or break-even facilities costs. Data input requirements are simplified into basic analytical components that are explained and illustrated with example analyses.

Keywords: Lumber, investment, computer software, economic analysis, drying, costs, energy, seasoning, economic aspects, DEP (computer program)
