This report describes the work accomplished over a two year project on planning methods to reduce harvest and product manufacturing costs and enhance value in managed forests. The focus in the first year was to design decision algorithms and data support systems that would allow a manager to increase his or her scope and efficiency in strategic planning. The foci in the second year were to complete design and testing work that had fallen behind schedule in the first year and to apply the methodology in a set of strategic analyses that would illustrate the functionality of the models.
