Production planning for value added lumber manufacturing Donald, William Stuart


Difficulties in effectively managing opportunities for value added lumber manufacturing facilities have led to a need to develop production planning systems for these facilities. Two linear programming based models were developed for this purpose. One model is designed for independent value facilities; the other is designed for integrated value added facilities. In demonstrating the use of the models, analyses were made of a study operation. The purpose of these analyses, was to explore the influences value added facility production policies have on sawmill production decisions for an integrated value added facility. The results suggest that value added facility production decisions can have significant influence on sawmill production decisions for an integrated valued added production operation.
