Digitalization has been on the move for a long time

The Digitalization of Forestry Operations has been taking long steps from conceptual design to real-time value chain management from the stub to pulp, paper, and sawn goods mills.

The picture, sketched by Irja Kallio, is from Ferdinand-Braun, Alsace, France.

UPM was the owner of the biggest sawmill in France at that time (1997).

The next step is the evolution of Intenet of Things (IoT) enabled measurement, control, monitoring, diagnostics, and long distance problem solving to save costs and enabled maximum uptime at sawmills.
