Abstract : CROMAX simulates crosscut-first, then rip operations as commonly practiced in furniture manufacture. This program calculates cutting yields from individual boards based on board size and defect location. Such information can be useful in predicting yield from various grades and grade mixes thereby allowing for better management decisions in the rough mill. The computer program CROMAX was written in ASCII FORTRAN on the University of Wiscosin's UNIVAC 1100/80 computer. The complete program listing is included as an appendix.
