CP4 Phase3

Ex 4: (Phase 3.) Design the collection and recording of results

Yields are reported automatically in the Yields worksheet after the entire Crop Plan has been executed and the Stand worksheet contains the tree list at the end of the projection. The Record worksheet provides a complete summary of inputs, intermediate results, and yields. It is often desirable to save a copy of the Record worksheet in the Record database (MGM Records.xls).

In this example, we wish to record the contents of the stand immediately before and after the Thin event just to verify that it's working properly. We also record the final stand to examine the conditions in the stand at the end of the growth projection.

  1. Right-click the first Grow event to insert a Record Stand event immediately after the Regen event.
    1. Click the Insert Event button on the MGM Toolbar or the shortcut menu (right-click on the event to display this menu).
    2. Select Record Stand.
    3. Click OK.
  2. Right-click the Thin event to insert a Record Stand event before the thinning.
    1. Click the Insert Event button on the MGM Toolbar or the shortcut menu (right-click on the event to display this menu).
    2. Select Record Stand.
    3. Click OK.
  3. Repeat step 1 twice to insert the Record Stand events before the next Grow event and before the End event.
  4. Save the Crop Plans worksheet using the MGM Toolbar Save button. When prompted for permission to replace the existing file, answer Yes.

The final crop plan should look like the one below.

We are now ready to execute the Crop Plans worksheet (Phase 4).
