Abstract:

RIPYLD is a computer program that optimizes the cutting yield from multiple-ripped boards. Decisions are based onautomatically collected defect information, cutting bill requirements, and sawing variables. The yield to clear cuttings from a board is calculated for every possible permutation of specified rip widths and both the maximum and minimum percent yield solutions are saved. Solutions include rip cut and crosscut locations as well as the percent yield of clear cuttings. Author
