Detailed time studies were used to determine feller-buncher and skidder productivity, whereas activity sampling was used to assess system productivity per unit volume and area for processing and loading.
To identify bottlenecks and determine landing efficiency, fixed-interval activity sampling information was collected for each machine during the productivity study.
Landing efficiency was assessed through simultaneous activity sampling of the loader, processor, and two rubber-tired skidders.
Skidding activity sampling results indicate that harvesting the additional small non-merchantable trees congested the landing.
Since processor productivity per tree or volume was not directly measured, the following formula, using activity sampling results, was used to estimate its productive capability:
WOP = average percent of activity sampling observations that a skidder was waiting on the processor
WOS = percent of activity sampling observations that the processor was waiting on a skidder
This formula reduces the processor's productivity by the total percentage of skidder and processor waiting time recorded during activity sampling.

Spudz will also be supported by 3m [pounds sterling] marketing campaign, including TV and press advertising, in-store activity sampling and strong consumer and trade PR support.
An integrated programme can include team activities, workplace champions, supporting good causes and activity sampling in a short burst of promotional activity, repeated and followed up by supportive actions which cement the cycling behaviour change for the longer term.
