Description: Cutting-bill requirements, among other factors, influence the yield obtained when cutting lumber into parts. The first part of this 2-part series described how different cutting-bill part sizes, when added to an existing cutting-bill, affect lumber yield, and quantified these observations. To accomplish this, the study employed linear least squares estimation technique. This second paper again looks at the influence of cutting-bill requirements but establishes a measure of how preferable it is to have a given part size required by the cutting-bill. The influence of the number of different part sizes to be cut simultaneously on lumber yield is also investigated.
Keywords: Cutting-bill requirements, lumber yield, rip-first rough mill, fractional-factorial design, interaction between cutting-bill requirements and yield, influence of part size and quantity on yield
