    Improved spreadsheet software capabilities have brought optimization to users with little or no background in mathematical programming.

Sawmill production and inventory systems possess many features that make them suitable application environments for spreadsheet optimization. This paper describes a spreadsheet model that optimizes log allocation and lumber production.
