5 ® 5 Labeling List Release Cycle Utilizing the MOP to identify and organize improvement opportunities The purpose of the work group is to utilize the Mail Optimization Matrix (MOP) to identify and organize improvement opportunities for all shapes of mail with collaboration from industry and USPS. Additionally, the goal is to identify changes that would create efficiencies, reduced costs, and improve cycle time around creation, processing and delivery of mail pieces. The workgroup consists of three subgroups: flats, letters and parcels. Each group will develop multiple MOPs based on mail flows and mail sort levels. WG 156 Primary Benefits: Create efficiencies: Identify opportunities to create efficiencies within mail flows by looking at preparation, drop locations, processing flows and MTE flows. Reduce costs: Identify ways to remove costs from the end-to-end mail flows for mailers, printers, and processors. Reduce cycle time: Identify opportunities to reduce and standardize cycle time by identifying non-value added steps within mail flows. Primary Subgroups: Letters: Focus on mail flows of concern within letter mail, such as first class single piece commercial and 3-digit vs. SCF trays. Flats: Focus on mail flows of concern within flat mail, such as DSCF carrier route bundles and FSS bundles. Parcels: Focus on mail flows of concern within parcel mail, such as DNDC parcel drops.
