Description: This paper describes a computerized hardwood lumber edger and trimming training system. The purpose of the training system is to help edger and trimmer operators and sawmill managers better understand how hardwood lumber grade, surface measure, and price interact to affect lumber value. The training system can be used both as a training tool and as a testing tool. As a training tool, the user can observe how the placement of edging and trimming lines can affect lumber value. As a testing tool, the user's learning progress after various training sessions can be tested. To maximize ease-of-use as well as programming flexibility, the training program was developed under Microsoft Windows 3.0. Various aspects and features of the computer program are described in this paper and an example session with the program is provided.
