The standard deals with so-called "in-plant milk-run systems", which are used as internal transport systems. It is an in-house transport system, which moves bundled units in transport (as a train). It usually consists of a tractor with several trailers and based on a transport concept in a plant, where suppling- and/or disposal-points are situated along (one or more) defined routes. The route consists of sources and sinks as stops on the route (e.g. an assembly line). The standard establishes a basic understanding of the system and can be used as a decision support in designing and dimensioning of in-plant milk-run systems. It also contains practical examples of in-plant milk-run systems, which can serve as suggestions in the resolution of planning tasks.
