Summary: The main objective of this study is to find possibilities for automatic determination of the method of furniture parts production,particulary from hardwoods.The problems of determining the method of dimension stock production from softwood could then also be solved by simple reduction of the limited criteria for hardwoods. The first stage of the study is making the corresponding computer program for simulated cutting of boards. This program must be supported by fairly good graphic presentation which will enable the board defect display with sufficient accuracy. After the input of the board defects into the graphic display of the board (non-edged, semi-edged, or edged ), the computer must optimize the crosscutting-ripping and ripping-crosscutting of boards, and by comparing the two best optimization solutions,choose one of the two, suggest the cutting method and assume the results. The next stage of this study are experimental cutting of boards,simulated board cutting with same defects distribution as in experimental cutting and comparison of the experimental and simulated cutting results.

Keywords: Optimization, cutting of boards, furniture parts production, simulation

Research goals: - Optimal board cutting based on computer program simulation; - Decrease of influence of subjective technologist prediction in making decision of board cutting method; - Increase of yield in sawmill and roughmill; - Increase of productivity in sawmill and roughmill; - Increase of products quality in sawmill and roughmill; - Increase of products value in sawmill and roughmill.
