  author={Franz Holzleitner and Karl Stampfer and Rien Visser},
Nacrtak Operating forest machines is not only expensive but accurate monitoring of economic variables can be very difficult. Detailed machine data capture of economic variables within a forest enterprise can be used to support accurate decision making processes, especially costing for new investments.
