    Description

    Automated lumber grading and yield optimization using computer controlled saws will be plausible for hardwoods if and when lumber scanning systems can reliably identify all defects by type. Existing computer programs could then be used to grade the lumber, identify the best cut-up solution, and control the sawing machines. The potential value of a scanning grading system depends on the accuracy and reliability of the computer-assigned grades compared to the performance of human graders. The potential worth of any scanning cut-up system is largely dependent on the parts recovered compared to today's standard rough mill processing systems.
