A Computer Program You Can Use: Edging and Trimmer Trainer


We present a computerized training tool designed to help hardwood sawmill edger and trim saw operators improve their processing performance. It can also be used by managers to understand the affects of processing decisions such as limiting wane beyond standard grading rule restrictions. The program helps users understand the relationships between lumber grade, surface measure and price/grade. It is a simple to use, point and click PC windows based program.
