Here's my feeble attempt here before the deadline! I read the cards wrong a few times, so my initial ideas didn't work. I hope it works out well enough though

I found two ways:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
start - #1 #2 #3 #4 #6 #6 #6 E M
1. E #1 -> Trade School -> #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #6 #6 M
2. #4 #5 #6 -> Warehouse -> #2 #3 #6 #6 M EE GG
3. #6 #6 -> Manufactory -> #2 #3 M EEEEE GGG
4. EEEE -> Battery Factory -> #2 #3 M E GGGG

Four goods, with metal, energy and two dice left over.


Alternatively, if I can have access to the Player Board:
Spoiler (click to reveal)
3. #2 #3 -> Research -> CC #6 #6 M EE GG
4. CC #6 #6 -> Trash Compactor -> M EE GGGG

Four goods, with metal and two energy left over. Probably better the first way, and just spend the extra dice to get more energy for next turn.

I think I have the solution:

Spoiler (click to reveal)
Trade School: 1 1E E 5, 1M
Warehouse: 4 5 6 E 2G, 2E, 1M
Manufactory: 6 6 E 3G, 5E, 1M
Battery Factory: 4E E 2 3 4G, 1E, 1M

If I assume though, that I had at least 1C in hand (which is likely during the game), I would rather do the following:

Trade School: 1 1E E 5, 1M
Warehouse: 4 5 6 E 2G, 2E, 1M
Manufactory: 6 6 E 3G, 2C, 2E, 1M
University: 2 1C E 3 3G, 2C, 2E, 1M
Trash Compactor: 3 d6-3: 2C E 5G, 2E, 1M

That way, I could generate 5 goods.

Yeah, I made the puzzle way too late in the night, so I didn't get around calculating if the player board opened up for new ways to solve it. I was afraid that being able to get extra cards would make it solvable with 5G, which was the entire point with the puzzle to begin with. Nice spotted with the alternative, though less optimal, solution though!

I believe that to be likely too, though 2C for 2G is a pretty decent outcome, so the hand might have been emptied last turn. It is, however, also a limiting factor with how the puzzle engine works where no cards can be assigned to hand. Nice job on the solve.
