Abstract or Summary
  • Because of the increasing need for the plywood industry to improve the performance and adaptability of its production facilities to meet demand, the need for a process-related decision-aiding method has been growing. The objective of this study was to develop a computer simulation for a plywood plant starting at the dryer and ending at the banding station using the GASP IV simulation language. A simplified model of an existing facility was developed and the computer program was thoroughly documented. Two sample runs were made and discussed. They show how this method can be used as a decision-helping tool in the real-world industrial environment. Because there is no application of simulation languages to the area of plywood manufacturing in the literature, future improvements of this simulation technique and its applications were discussed.
