Are the Postal Service’s mail processing facilities optimally staffed?

The Postal Service uses a staff modeling tool called the Function 1 Scheduler to determine optimum staffing levels at mail processing facilities. The tool utilizes data inputs such as mail volumes, types of mail processing machines, transportation arrival and departure times, and mail processing productivities.
