Log Batch Cutting Optimization in a sawmill

How to choose what timber to cut from what log ?

The importance of choosing the right log to make each particular size of timber requires deeper insight into what is important. It's easy to fall into the trap of cutting small dimensional timber out of large logs. Save the large ones for large timber.
1. Pi3 finds the optimal log diameter for each specific timber size. To reach the goal, series of log sizes are recalculated and the highest timber output is set. The process of finding the corresponding log is repeated for each timber size specified by the production program.
2. The optimal cutting pattern for a given timber for a given log is calculated.
Do all your measurements for a batch of logs and then start cutting.
Waste nothing!
