Title: Analyisis of the small parcel express carrier distribuion envirnonment for drop height statistical referencing and development of laboratory test specifications
Author: Wilson, Scott
Abstract: The distribution environment is an ever-changing industry. Test specifications used in laboratory testing to protect product transported through various channels of this environment require constant evaluation. A study to monitor the manual handling of the small parcel express carrier distribution environment was undertaken to quantify the dynamics experienced and better ensure confidence of the parameters for laboratory test specifications. Two package designs, differing in weight and size, were analyzed in 158 trips with and without the use of handholds. Significant drop heights, quantity of drops and orientations of these drops were collected using environmental recorders. The data was analyzed statistically for significance, quantitative distributions and probability of occurrences. Finally, the results were used to develop parameters for two drop tests, an integrity test and a focused simulation test, using only the relevant data collected.
