Dr. Joel Henry was tasked under a research and development contract with the DPRA to create a computer program that, when given a list of cargo items and a list of containers, would approximate the number of containers required to pack the items and determine a packing order for the cargo items. When commercially used, a computer trained employee runs the program and prints off the resulting packing list. This list is then given to another employee, who works in a different location and performs the physical packing. This is a tedious and time consuming process. This project will examine a possible software solution that utilizes barcode scanning and wireless LAN technology to streamline the packing process.
