Abstract

Often a customer will receive multiple systems shipped in multiple different box groups. They are usually received and stored in a location that separate the box groups. The boxes are often randomly stacked on top of or under other boxes and pressed up next to other boxes. It is difficult to locate the members of the box groups because they may have other systems blocking the labels necessary to locate the members of a grouping. By putting a unique "audible document" on the outside of the box of each member of a group, a user could press a button, and an audible sound would allow easy location of the other members of the group.
