WoodCite is a Microsoft® Access-based application that allows wood component manufacturers to develop product price quotations for their customers.

[image:] WoodCite 1.0 Installation ScreenWoodCite computes your product cost information based on your entries. In addition to creating a product price quotation, you can use WoodCite to run various scenarios to see where you can improve productivity or add a new machine to your plant, or simply perform a "what-if?" analysis to see where you can reduce costs while ensuring product quality and value.

System Requirements

Windows XP or Windows 7

WoodCite was developed using Microsoft® Access 2007 , and uses Microsoft® Excel to perform statistical computations.

The minimum requirements are as follows:

  • IBM - compatible PC with Microsoft® Windows 2000 to 7 (latest service packs) 6 installed
  • Microsoft® Access 2002 to 2007 (latest service packs)
