Considering harvesting costs and productivity forecasting that depends on each region, the model prescribes the best management actions for the forest areas in next 30 years, ensuring wood supply for the plants and minimizing costs. The system deals with particular business practices, like land , evaluation of buy and sale opportunities, and need of soft variation on transportation costs year-to-year. Solutions for the scenarios are visualized on maps by a connection of AIMMS with GIS, what enables the evaluation of spatial constraints that are not explicit on mathematical modeling but are operationally important.
