Abstract [en]

To be competitive in wooden industry you need to have well defined quality of your products and processes. This document Quality Hand Book-Joinery Kiln Drying (QHB) presents definitions of drying quality parameters. The wood drying process is the most important process within sawmilling. If the drying process is not functioning accurate, enormous values will be literally dried away. A number of actors are producers of timber blanks and semi-finished profiles for non structural uses, such as window frames. Customers need, demand and expectations have to be fulfilled by supplying products which have the correct quality, even if customer is internal or external of the company. To have a high quality further processed product, a successive drying process of the timber is necessary to meet the competition of tomorrow. As high-class drying process is achieved this will separate the performer from its competitors. The QHB shall be base for further quality thinking and identifies quality parameters and definitions of important factors related to drying. The quality parameters have to be taken into consideration in kiln drying production to meet further processing requirements.
