Return­able Con­tainer Selec­tion Cri­te­ria

There are many fac­tors to weigh in order to select the most effec­tive reusable con­tainer. This pre­sen­ta­tion out­lines tools that are avail­able to help busi­nesses make informed deci­sions regard­ing the type, size and den­sity (parts per con­tainer) of the most effec­tive return­able con­tainer for their oper­a­tions. It also helps busi­nesses weigh oper­a­tional con­straints such as ergonom­ics, space in the man­u­fac­tur­ing oper­a­tions, avail­able stor­age space, inven­tory poli­cies, and oper­a­tor effi­ciency. These con­straints need to be bal­anced against inbound trans­porta­tion costs to pro­vide the low­est total deliv­ered cost of mate­r­ial to a plant or ware­house. Pre­sen­ters: Michael McGrath, Pres­i­dent of 3P Sup­ply Chain Engi­neer­ing, and Michael Kennedy, Vice Pres­i­dent of Oper­a­tions at 3P Sup­ply Chain Engi­neer­ing.
