3 Is the maximum numer of workers that you can queue per field, but this leads to over saturation when you max out on mineral fields.

The optimal amount of harvester pre refinery is 3. Any more and the harvesters will que up and time will be wasted. Any less and the harvesting time (the time the harvester spends inside the refinery) will not be maxed out.

best is to use just 3. Anything more and they have to queue.

You want 3 SCVs (or drones, or probes) per gas. Depending on the game though, you may want to bring SCVs from gas onto minerals temporarily  (e.g. the units you're making are more mineral heavy, or you just lost a lot of your SCVs to harass and need more minerals)

But in general, 3 SCVs  per refinery.

3 scv's per refinery, 3 scv's per stack of minerals. So, roughly 32 scv's per expo is optimal.

3 is the magic number. As for minerals, you'll want around 2 per patch (usually there are 8 patches and 2 gases, so 16 SCVs on minerals and 6 on gas per base).

If your ressource garrison building is the closest as it can be to the refinery, then 3 SCVs will be optimal to avoid queue'ing them outside.
