dc.description.abstract The primary objective of this study was to determine if the implementation of a returnable/reusable container system was financially viable for a specific company. The study attempted to document all cost parameters involved in making a capital budgeting decision regarding returnable containers. The specific cost parameters applicable to this project were then identified. The actual cost associated with each parameter was then obtained either through quotation or calculation. Several capital budget decision making cost analysis methods were presented. One method which best represented the project's qualifying factors was then chosen. The analysis was completed and the results were presented. The results of this study determined that it would be a financially viable decision to implement a returnable container system at this company. en_US
