This project involves the addition of an operating center for a world wide package delivery company. All data and information was collected through interviews with employees of this company. The need for the additional was driven by volume growth. The continuously increasing volume resulted in operational conditions which exceeded the building's design capacity limitations. Specifically, operating inefficiencies were being incurred because the number of vehicles being used was greater than the number of physical parking locations. Due to the limited number of parking locations available during the limes allocated for vehicle loading and unloading, the vehicles had to be loaded and unloaded from non-standard locations which greatly reduced the operational efficiency.
