DescriptionThe wood-products industry is characterized by many small manufacturers that lack the staff to compile and analyze information on their operations and investments. Two computer programs, FRAN and JEFFI, have been developed by the USDA Forest Service at Princeton, West Virginia,to help small companies better analyze and monitor current performance, and better evaluate opportunities to expand operations, move into new product areas, or otherwise make additional investments. These financial management tools are described in detail.
