The higher the proportion of the finished product that maintains the intended quality, the better. Quality problems in the sawing process often cause operational disruptions and additional costs.
Maximum availability is an important KPI for all Sawmills. Minimization of planned and unplanned downtime increases profitability.
Increased production rate gives increased share of finished goods to sell. Increased speed has a direct effect on profitability.
Access to the raw material is limited and timber is the largest individual cost for a sawmill. The higher the utilization, the yield of each log, the higher the profitability.
Our products refine a valuable raw material that is renewable and part of the solution for a sustainable society. Wood. LSAB’s goals for sustainability are not just about the raw material but affect all the areas we affect.
Current situation analysis
Step one in the process is to establish a current situation. This is mainly done by: Collection of data via interviews and visits to Sawmills. Site Manager / Production Manager. Identification of key figures, KPI for Sawmills. Implementation of Loggmaster for establishing facts about the saw line. Creates an image of the current situation based on facts. Creates transparency for management about the starting position. Enables benchmarking against other units.
Proposed measures are produced with the help of our digital tool Effekt. Proposed measures are linked to our tool logic.
- Minimize downtime
Implementation of decided measures. Possible test procedure, product development. Defined start date and end. Ongoing follow-up of LSAB specialists. Adjust if necessary. Our product offering is comprehensive and leading in our industry. We manufacture and sell products under our own brands such as Micor, Långshyttan, Westlings. Based on scenarios and simulations of different alternatives, common priorities are made.
Follow-up and results
Presentation and follow-up of results against set goals. Loggmaster provides an overview and show the results of actions. Implementation of Loggmaster ensures that our joint efforts and the results of these are measurable. Creates transparency for management about the starting point and the outcome of activity. Enables benchmarking against other units.
