Production Data Analysis From Mechanised Forest Operations

The aim of the study is to look at the available research on forest machinery production data and collect further data on forest machinery working in conditions that have not been studied before. In so doing we hope to determine what value the production data collected in British Columbia provides as a management tool when it is used in the conventional way and compare that to systems around the world that have access to the same or more advanced production data. By doing this we hope to create a better understanding of the unique challenges to management of forest machinery in British Columbia and how the production data system can be improved.
