When the user has a set of different stands to be simulated under a management driven philosophy, is the best option. Again he is given the option of preparing most of the required inputs using the Generator before using forms to browse for the inputs and define some simulation parameters.

It is the user’s responsibility to ensure the consistency among the different inputs, ie, the user must guarantee that FMA’s and prescriptions for all types of stands in the input have been generated, that the right prescription has been assigned to each stand and that both FMAs and prescriptions have been defined to cover the whole planning horizon.
