Abstract
  • When considering a mechanized harvesting operation, the harvest planner or researcher is faced with a multitude of modern equipment choices. A decision support system (DSS) is presented to assist in selecting the appropriate level of mechanization. The DSS examines individual machines and formulates mechanized harvesting systems from them that adequately match the site and stand work environment, achieve user defined goals of a final product at a specific location, and operate within user defined constraints. Individual machines are identified by assigned "attributes" describing the physical limits of operability and the equipment's interaction with other machines. Mechanized systems are constructed using the "output" of a machine (the product's state, location and accumulation arrangement) as an "input" for a successor machine. The "output-input" is also used as an eligibility requirement for potential successor machines in the system. The DSS is implemented in a computer program called TIMBER HARVESTER for use on personal computers. The program makes use of a support data bases including mechanized equipment lists and coininon mechanized systems.
