DescriptionThe yields of interior furniture parts from four manufacturing sequences were compared. In three of the sequences, gang-ripping was the first step; in the fourth, the lumber was crosscut first. Though the grade of lumber used affects the percentage yield of parts, the manufacturing sequence used does not - but it will affect the cost per part. The selection of the best method must be based on factors other than parts yield.
