Abstract:

The purpose of this MBA project is to identify the typical pallet utilization for the Defense Distribution Depot San Joaquin DDJC shipments to the Defense Distribution Depot San Diego DDDC. That information will be used as the basis for suggesting a standardized reutilization management system for wood and non-wood pallets. This project will provide analysis for the inclusion of Radio Frequency Identification, and Unique Item Identification in conjunction with bar code technology for the improvement of asset visibility within the Department of Defenses supply network.
