    A versatile microcomputer-based interactive graphics sawing program has been developed as a tool for modeling various hardwood processes, from bucking and topping to log sawing, lumber edging, secondary processing, and even veneering. The microcomputer platform makes the tool affordable and accessible. A solid modeling basis provides the tool with a sound geometrical and topological foundation. Owing to the simulation's flexibility, it can be used in a variety of wood-processing operations. Within any operation, it can be used to analyze processing alternatives, or to aid in the training of personnel.
