DescriptionPallet recovery projects are environmentally responsible and offer promising business opportunities. The Pallet Recovery Opportunity Analysis Computer Tool (PROACT) assesses the operational and financial feasibility of potential pallet recovery projects. The use of project specific information supplied by the user increases the accuracy and the validity of the feasibility study. Different scenarios of the same project can also be compared easily because changes in input are instantly reflected in the feasibility study results. PROACT is designed for us with Microsoft® Excel®--the most widely used spreadsheet program on the market today. It is easy to use, even for those unfamiliar with computer spreadsheet programs. PROACT is a workbook with three worksheets. This guide provides users with a complete tour of two of these worksheets--inputs and reports--by describing cells, defining terms, illustrating all on-screen tables and charts, and using an example project.
