The forestry-wood chain: simulation technique, measurement accuracy, traceability concept
2003 (English)Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

A customer-oriented production philosophy, an integrated forestry-wood chain and the global vision of Precision Forestry are concepts that researchers and people involved in the forest and wood industry have to deal with in the beginning of this new millennium. Fulfilling the specific requirements for dimension, length, biological features and proof-of-origin that customers demand for the wood products entails the existence of advanced methods and tools for understanding and thus controlling the production process along the forestry-wood value chain. The two overall objectives of this thesis were a) to study the prerequisites of using the simulation technique together with advanced simulation tools in understanding the role of the measurement accuracy at different locations within the forestry-wood production chain and b) to study the prerequisites of developing a marking/reading free traceability system for sawlogs based on log measurement data as generated today at the sawmill site.
