Information concerning the packaging is used to determine the number of packages which must be
transported, loading and unloading times that must be scheduled, maintenance requirements (time
and cost), and the number of vehicle trips required. The "Show Package Details" button on the
input screen brings up the packaging information screen shown in Figure 2, which is used to specify
the necessary parameters.
When the number of packages needed for the campaign is being calculated, the window for
'number of packages available' is inactive. This value is specified when the user is calculating the
length of time for the campaign. Package capacity information is available for all of the packages
contained in the TRANSCOST database. Loading and unloading time and labor rates are used in
determining the cost and schedule requirements for these aspects of the campaign. Maintenance
costs and times are also used to calculate the time and costs necessary for this function.
