Remsoft launches new product for making wood allocation decisions

November 22nd, 2004

Fredericton, NB - Forestry companies can now squeeze more revenue from their operations just by changing how and when they decide to assign and deliver wood fibre to manufacturing facilities and external customers.

The change comes with the launch of Allocation Optimizer by Remsoft Inc. - the first commercial software product that enables users to include destination, mill demands, transportation costs and the cost and value of products in strategic management plans.

The benefit? The ability to schedule the harvesting, processing and delivery of wood products so that they not only meet market demands but do so at the highest profit or lowest delivered wood costs.

Optimal Planning

Allocation Optimizer represents a quantum leap forward in forest planning because in means decisions about where, when and what to harvest (or to deliver silviculture or some other treatments) are linked directly to market and mill needs, helping organizations to increase efficiency and improve profitability.

The result is truly optimal planning and the benefit is potentially millions of dollars saved (or millions in additional revenue generated) because strategic management plans will produce the right forest products, in the right place and at the right time that they are required by mills or other client destinations.

Client demand

Current users of the Remsoft Spatial Planning System have been the driving force behind the development of Allocation Optimizer because they need to match forest output to market demand and to have this information at the strategic stages of planning - when harvest scheduling decisions are being made.

Tighter profit margin and other pressures in the forest industry means there is less room for guess work in developing actionable forest management plans and Allocation Optimizer can help add greater certainty and operational relevance to strategic planning.

Allocation Optimizer is an extension to the Remsoft Spatial Planning System. Once allocation choices are built-in to the System's models, users can select the best allocation of resources and explore the implication of alternative choices.

"This problem of allocation of resource is something most forestry companies are faced with today. It is a supply chain management issue, but the fact that they are dealing with natural systems complicates the matter," explains Ugo Feunekes, Remsoft vice president of research and development and the lead developer of the product.

"The problem has always been how to deal with it efficiently and since they haven't been able to do that, the allocation issue has been ignored. That no longer has to be the case. This product is really quite a breakthrough in that sense."
