GreenLane is a ForestValue transnational project aiming at developing a virtual supply chain laboratory environment enabling value-tracking and interactive testing of harvesting and transport responses to challenging climate scenarios. The focus is on implementing weather-driven models for wood quality and availability.
After the development of the integrated weather-driven frameworks for wood quality (IBM) and road availability (RBC) during the first project phase in 2019-2020, the project has now achieved the next milestone, the development of region-specific virtual laboratory environments.
Furthermore, it is of note that Dr. Christoph Koglers (AT-BOKU) article “Contingency plans for the wood supply chain based on bottleneck and queuing time analyses of a discrete event simulation” (Forests, 11(4), 1–23, https://doi.org/10.3390/f11040396) received the Best Paper Award from the Jubilee Fund of the City of Vienna for scientific excellence and high practical relevance for stakeholders along the entire wood supply chain. The game-based workshop approach is documented in the International Journal of Simulation Modelling, 19(3), 446–457, https://doi.org/10.2507/IJSIMM19-3-526).
