    Description

    A computerized pallet grading training system was developed to facilitate the production of higher quality pallets. Higher quality pallets would be more durable and could be re-used many times, resulting in long-term savings. Schmoldt et al. (1993) evaluated the economic impact of grading and sorting pallet parts. They determined that higher quality pallets produced by grading and sorting pallet parts would be attractive to both manufacturers and their clients. Consequently, a computerized pallet part grading training system was developed to enable manufacturers to train employees to accurately grade pallet parts.
