Piece Sample Explosions

 

Piece Sample Explosions

December,  2000 -- As logs get smaller in diameter, they also get more costly to scale.  Hence, the industry has a variety of sampling and scale explosion programs.  In getting ready for the Weyerhaeuser Washington implementation in January 2001, CT3 has added support for another one to LMS (see Cube Measurement Explosions and Log Measurement pages also).  This addition handles Scribner Scale Explosions based on Piece Count Samples.  

Weyerhaeuser has accumulated pools of logs with Scribner Scale log by log detail.  The Pools were created based on the source of the logs (Treefarm), Destination (where they were delivered), Log Species, Log Sort, Dimensions (length & diameter), and date range.  In order to utilize this sample base of Pool Logs, CT3 has added the capability to create Scribner Scale Explosions based on piece counts.  The user enters a Sample ID and a Piece Count for a given production load, or sale out of inventory.  Then a LMS routine randomly selects pool logs from the appropriate sample base of logs and generates a Scribner Scale "ticket".  The ticket may  represent a single truck load, or a Lot on an Export Vessel.  Either way, the scale explosion can generate detailed log scale for 1 to an unlimited number of pieces.  This is a nice solution when weigh scales are not close by, or for large log shipments where weight to scale statistics are not practical.
