Does WTP take the width of the saw blade when calculating board lenths?

When I use WTP it tells me the Economy Board Length and Grain Match Board Length.

When the software is telling me those lengths, does it take the width of the saw blade into account? If I have a segment that has 2-1/8" Segment Edge Length and I'm using a 1/8" thick blade, then I'm actually cutting 2-1/4" from the board at the outside edge of the segment.

Yes. It takes into account the saw kerf and the number of segments for the ring.
Remember you are flipping the board each cut, so one edge already has the angle cut done.
