  Understanding Yield Management
Yield management, minus polite trappings, is basically the combination of processes, analysis, and techniques a vendor applies to the types of products it offers in order to induce (or compel) its customers to pay as much as possible.
Yield is a complex word that can refer to profitability in a number of ways, but the essence of being in business is to manage the greatest possible spread between costs and revenues.
Thus yield management is more effective (or at least easier) when you have as few skills and other tools as possible that might enable you to circumvent it.

The yield map also is a chance to pass down management and yield records to heirs, land buyers or renters.

 SUSTAINED YIELD PATH DEPENDENCE
The sustained yield forestry methodology applied to old growth forests seeks to liquidate the old growth on a schedule creating a ‘regulated forest’,: crops of trees maturing as a flow of commodities.
If six decades ago a management plan was begun to liquidate old growth and convert to an eighty year regulated forest rotation, it is no easy matter for a new management team or government to escape this management plan in later decades of the schedule.
Where management is of forests already converted, SYPD or the need to produce an inflated flow of commodities does not allow for the return of significant areas of forests to fully functioning ecosystems within historical variability in order to allow for sustainable human use in the future.

 Freight's Yield Signs
Yet strict management of yield has failed to catch on widely in the cargo industry: of the top 20 belly carriers, only five have installed such systems and those are limited in scope or are based on outdated technology.
The airline industry's push for higher yield is a driving force behind the time-definite services spreading among the carriers, the guarantees that are being extended and even to the carriers' moves to link their networks in far-flung alliances.
For all the complexity of the cargo business, the greatest barrier to true yield management at combination airlines may be the factor they most dislike discussing: passengers are the mainstay business and attract the greatest corporate attention, even at airlines that have significant cargo divisions.

 3 Guidelines for forest management planning
Yield regulation, irrespective of the silvicultural system being applied, provides a basis for deriving a log harvest which is in balance with forest increment and for controlling the output to ensure that the cut is neither exceeded nor undercut.
Yield Determination: The calculation, by volume or by area (or a combination of both), of the amount of forest produce that may be harvested annually, or periodically, from a specific area of forest over a stated period, in accordance with the objects of management.
In order to monitor the yield over a longer term, of at least 15 years, the MAI for the whole of the forest management unit should be derived for this period and should be balanced against the total harvest for the same period.

Yields are expressed as a fraction of the maximum crop yield obtained with fertilization.
