In the evaluation of a material handling system, multiple factors should be considered, including the plant's facilities, the machinery, the material handling equipment, and of course, the people involved. Simulation techniques can be effectively used in all the phases of this process in order to understand the behavior of manufacturing systems, from the material handling concept definition throughout the system's final implementation(1).
A great example of material handling system would be the typical shipping dock. The product being shipped is stored on industrial pallet racks. The shipping clerk uses a lift truck to pull a skid of product from the rack and bring it to the ground. The clerk then loads the pallet onto a manual or automatic pallet truck, and rolls the product to his semiautomatic stretch wrap machine. After the pallet is wrapped, it is moved to a floor scale. The next step would be the clerk filling out his shipping documentation on his shipper's desk, and loading the pallet with the use of his dock plate onto a truck. In the above case, the following items are part of the integrated industrial material handling system: Pallet Racks, Lift Truck, Pallet Truck, Stretch Wrap Machine, Floor Scale, Shippers Desk, and Dock Plate. A Plus Warehouse sells and stocks each of these material handling equipments.

All stores, unit or bulk, packed, or loose have to be handled by men or machines. Proper handling of goods is as important as correct packing because much damage can occur due to improper handling. An important objective of all store operators is to minimize deterioration and spoilage or damage…
Covalent bonds are directional and it will try very hard to resist deformation when a force is applied. The ionic bonding between the metal and non-metal components of the ceramics also makes material brittle. Generally, metals are tough since its atoms are tightly bonded by a sea of electrons which are valence electrons that wander around the substance and never stick with a single atom.
Grievances are common not only in organization but also in our social life. However it has been shown that the nature of the grievances is not that important than the process that is used to handle the grievances. Before we look at the process of handling a grievance in an organization, let us look use first understand the nature of a grievance.

Moreover, the process involved in making the material part is an idea not worth forsaking. These processes are either casting, machining, and or welding. Some basic groups of materials are liquids, gases, polymers, ceramics, composites, and metals (Ashby
