Since 2010, the technical knowledge and forestry roots of Malinovski’s professionals have helped customers add value to their products and services, reducing costs and increasing productivity through specialized consultancy.

In 2020, Malinovski went through a business restructuring, seeking innovation for the Intelligence unit. The business unit is focused on consulting and innovation services for forest-based companies. This unit has consultants who serve forest companies and the wood industry nationally and internationally. This hub is divided into two major groups: Malinovski Consulting and Malinovski Innovation.

Malinovski Consulting:  the mission of this unit is to analyze the processes and systems; technologies; markets; human capital and its cultural aspects; seeking to disrupt current standards, bringing the newest technology available in the market, so that customers maximize the return on their investments.

Malinovski Innovation: provides technological services focused on the operational areas of roads, silviculture, timber harvesting and transport. To achieve this level, strategic partnerships have been signed with technology companies that present innovative solutions for customers in the forest sector.

At Malinovski, the partners find adequate support for their technical and strategic needs, as a result of our multidisciplinary team of engineers, managers and communicators, which has the ability to understand the partners and the market to propose solutions for effective results.

Platform for forest road planning integrated with the road master plan.

PARTNER COMPANY:

Optimus GIS.

WHAT THE PLATFORM DOES:

– Simulation of scenarios to analyze the best decisions in relation to the following points: density of roads, timber extraction distance, annual harvest plan, areas with operational restrictions, percentage of gravel roads, definition of better routes, among others;

– Presentation of results on interactive dashboards for analysis and management of the best scenarios for your business.

DELIVERABLE PRODUCTS OF THE ROAD MASTER PLAN:

– Risk matrix;

– Traffic intensity;

– Definition of road quality;

– Financial and construction schedule;

– Descriptive Technical Data Report;

– New road layout map.

GAIN OPPORTUNITIES:

– Cost reduction;

– Assertive planning;

– Readjustment of the road network.

INFORMATION:

– Data collection of road quality using (UAV).

Integrated platform for forest productivity management.

PARTNER COMPANY:

Geplant Tecnologia Florestal.

WHAT THE PLATFORM DOES:

GPT is an integrated platform that helps investors, forest-based industries and wood producers to maximize return on investments, increasing the predictability of current and future stocks, reducing monitoring costs and optimizing management recommendations to increase the performance of plantations.

HOW:

The GPT methodology integrates data, analytical tools and forestry technology to generate reliable indicators and establish targeted improvement actions, aiming at gains in productivity. Thus, it is possible to identify and quantify the climatic impacts on wood production and opportunities such as silvicultural management.

DELIVERABLE PRODUCTS:

They are divided into three modules:

FOREST INVENTORY

– Remote estimative of wood stock per stand, updated quarterly.

QUALITY AND PRODUCTIVITY

– Mapping the productive capacity of the production units;

– Quantification of productivity gaps;

– Strategy to improve silvicultural management.

RISK MANAGEMENT

– Quantification of production risks associated with productivity.

OPPORTUNITIES AND GAINS

FOREST INVENTORY

– Lower operational cost and greater agility in the acquisition of data;

– Improvement of spatial and temporal resolution of production estimative;

– Accuracy and precision to determine wood stocks.

QUALITY AND PRODUCTIVITY

– Maximization of potential productive by reducing productivity losses;

– Priority in management actions to recover productivity.

RISK MANAGEMENT

– Competitive advantage in contract negotiation (forest asset expansion and wood purchases);

– Greater transparency to estimate the return of investment in feasibility studies.

Quality platform for forest plantations.

PARTNER COMPANY:

Spectrum Inteligência Espacial.

WHAT THE PLATFORM DOES:

– Diagnosis of forest plantation health;

– Seedling counting by drone images and use of specific algorithms – live and dead plants in total area;

– Homogeneity index – Pvar50;

– Weed competition identification – weed identification in the line and between the lines of forest plantations.

GIS tool for optimizing forwarder operation and schedule the timber harvest modules.

WHAT THE PLATFORM DOES:

– It supports the planning and operational decision-making of logging/forwarding and schedule of the harvest module, based on quantitative analyzes with operational and cost indicators. It generates scenarios and performs optimization of woodpiles allocation based on the stand size and modules on the harvest fronts, in order to reduce the cost of timber harvest operation.

HOW:

The tool integrates with companies’ GIS microplanning processes, bringing:

– Optimized solutions in relation to the quantity and location of woodpiles;

– Logging/Forwarding distance indicators by wood position in the field and the stand and project average;

– Easy simulation of scenarios, complying with different operational premises for planning;

– Service areas indication, allowing the information to be loaded to embedded system and guiding the operator to travel in the shortest possible distance.

DELIVERABLE PRODUCTS:

– Implementation of the tool for use by the company;

– Team training.

GAIN OPPORTUNITIES:

– Cost reduction with optimization of the machine path in the timber logging/forwarding operation in the stand and machinery displacement to the modules;

– Greater agility for microplanning and operational teams to generate information and make decisions.

Forest transport simulator.

WHAT THE PLATFORM DOES:

– Supports the planning and operational decision-making of timber transport, comparing different truck models and operational conditions.
