Statistical Process Control for softwood industry
Friday 16 Aug 2019
Co-Sponsored by The National Centre for Timber Durability and Design Life and the Mt. Gambier Timber Research Centre and supported by Forest and Wood Products Australia, the week-long workshop was delivered by Dr. Tim Young from the University of Tennessee, Dr. Geoff Boughton of TimberEd Services, and Jeff Morrell from the Durability Centre.
Students learned how to use the huge amount of data they collect each day to improve processing, optimize recovery and enhance their ability to verify that materials are fit for purpose. This was the first in a series of continuing workshops to help manufacturers better use their data.
