Modern equipment must comply with the production intensification requirements: price acceptable to consumer, high quality and low prime cost. Patent clearance factor is also important. Quality of equipment can be described by its efficiency, economic performance (economical effect, cost effectiveness, payoff period), power consumption, reliability, ergonomics, aesthetic qualities, environmental compliance, exploitation safety, maintainability and possibility of recycling. Prime cost includes personnel costs, carrying out applied researches, testing of patent clearance and patent search, raw materials and supplements, energy, manufacturing and assembling, maintenance and operation of technological equipment, product sales. Patent clearance is a legal property of a technological item. This means its ability to be freely used in the country without infringement of patents. Saw machine designers should use modern design methods to meet the requirements mentioned above. The article describes the examples of using these methods for development the sawmill equipment.
