Brief Description

This is a simple material transfer project demonstrating how to handle product storage, shipping and production planning issues.

Material is sourced from 5 different locations producing 3 different products. These products are stored in the PortStockpiles to wait in queue to be shipped away to customers. User can use the results from Financials (General Controller) to plan for the best production ratio to maximise profit.

Material Tracking has been enabled so that the contribution of ore from each of the 5 pits to the products can be reported.

The Archive Reporter has been enabled and several tables have been defined to report results at regular intervals. The results are saved in csv files.
