    Description

    A crosscut-first furniture rough mill was simulated to evaluate processing and raw material costs on an individual part basis. Distributions representing the real-world characteristics of lumber, equipment feed speeds, and processing requirements are programed into the simulation. Costs of parts from a specific cutting bill are given, and effects of lumber input costs are discussed. GASP IV (A Combined Continuous/Discrete FORTRAN-based Simulation Language) was used.
