45 45 The Container Utilities Menu is an important function to daily production. The system needs to know each time a material, a component a finished part, etc is physically moved throughout the RDM facility. Each move has to be recorded in Plex.

By completing the Container Utilities EVERYTIME, anyone in the facility will know where any given container or part is at ANYTIME!
