SAWSIM is a flexible computer program that accurately models the breakdown of logs in any sawmill. With over 30 years of development, SAWSIM is widely recognized as the industry-standard sawmill simulation program. Using SAWSIM, virtually any question about sawmill operations can be answered. Typical applications include evaluation of mill design or modification proposals, alternative mill equipment options, and overall production planning and...
WOODSIM is a comprehensive program that simulates log-supply operations, from standing trees or long logs, through to bucked logs ready for sawing, peeling, chipping, or other manufacturing operations.
Optimize your production plan... Optimize your optimizers. Like most companies, you've invested millions in machine center optimizers throughout your mill. But does that mean your operations are truly optimal? In most cases the answer is no.
The SAWSIM LP system was developed to apply the power of SAWSIM and Linear Programming to sawmills, typically outside of North America, where a mix of a large number of products has to be cut to match a predefined product mix, usually from presorted logs.
PANELSIMis HALCO's general name for a linear programming (LP) optimization model that may incorporate models of veneer, plywood, LVL, OSB, I-Joist, and stud operations. Any number of mills may be modeled either independently or together. An LP model resolves the trade-offs between yield, material flow, and manufacturing and material costs resulting from each operating alternative, to determine the operating plan that truly maximizes profit.
