It is too expensive for a distributor to buy lumber from suppliers. Starting its own production line might be more profitable. In this region you can find 3 timber mills with different types of production, production capacities, and lumber log suppliers.
The goal is to consider characteristics of the timber mills, and decide whether we should start our own production, or purchase finished goods.
The result shows that the profitable option would be to buy all timber mills in this region. The data on product, production flows, all costs, etc. is shown in the corresponding tables.
