Generate harvest crew and delivery schedules that are responsive to real-world changes with Woodstock Scheduler. Understand wood flow and perform in-depth impact and risk analysis.
Within forestry, understanding which systems to apply to harvest blocks while considering timing, mill demands, haul costs, crews and equipment needs is critical to reducing costs and increasing revenue. Maximizing revenue from harvest operations is a complicated balancing act that requires organizations to understand and adapt to multiple, changing variables while ensuring all demands and goals are met sustainably. Woodstock Scheduler empowers operations to model the forest supply chain and balance all these factors to produce optimal, defensible harvest and delivery schedules.
An optimized scheduling process that can help you assign the right crews and systems to the right harvest blocks at the right time to fulfill sales contracts, reduce costs and maximize revenue.
Efficiently develop schedules that determine which units get assigned to each crew and at which time. View and modify harvest schedules, dynamically responding to factors such as unexpected shutdowns, changes to crew productivity rates and product demand.
Understand the impact of decisions on capacity, profitability, and risk. Create and compare scenarios and report on Key Performance Indicators. Reduce time spent planning and budgeting from several days to hours.
Consider and reduce the cost it takes to move harvest and silvicultural crews from one block/sequence to another. Minimize haul cost and harvest cost while better meeting sales contracts.
View schedules in an intuitive and user-friendly interface. Display production metrics for multiple attributes in several levels of detail over the planning horizon. Create, modify, and analyze operational schedules that are responsive to real-world changes.
View and edit schedules simultaneously with associated spatial data so you can see how your schedule plays out on the ground. See delivery volumes associated with multi-period harvests. Visualize scheduled activities related to prescriptions and regimes and view activities that are scheduled after the harvest action.
Align raw material available with mill demand and sales contracts to ensure inventory to meet future contracts. Prioritize for maximum return on investment while accounting for crew movement costs. Increase profitability by reducing delivery costs.
The ability to model the supply chain to optimize, analyze and evaluate harvest schedules and decisions is vital within forestry. Optimizing the timing of activity and resource allocation in Woodstock Scheduler can help to understand the impact of decisions on capacity, profitability, and risk, enabling adjustments that maximize revenue from harvest operation.
Woodstock Scheduler is a feature-rich optimization application for generating harvest crew and delivery schedules.
