In this Warehouse and Inventory Management course students will learn to efficiently control the day-to-day operations of this vital part of the supply chain process. Students will learn best practices in the management of the warehouse to include receiving, put-away, picking, and shipping and in overseeing and controlling the inventory of a company’s products. Students will learn industry recommended procedures to manage people, processes, and systems to ensure goods are received and dispatched appropriately, and productivity targets are met.
Have you ever asked yourself, why are we still operating the way we did 20 years ago? Why is the warehouse viewed by management as a drain on company resources? Why does the sales department blame many of their problems on poor warehouse performance? Why do some distribution centers have excellent performance while ours struggles? If you have asked yourself any of these questions, this class is for you.
This three day class unravels the secrets of those best-in-class operations and shows how they create a competitive advantage for their companies. Throughout the course we will discuss the latest technologies and software available to improve receiving, put-away, picking, and distribution.
The class starts by analyzing the current state of your operations; based on the results, the class provides a systematic, yet flexible, action plan for improvement, which involves human behavior, process redesign, warehouse management systems, and supply chain alignment. Class materials, along with case studies, detailed examples, and thought provoking questions will move your facility to best-in-class.
The class finishes up with a review of how new technologies and software are changing the manufacturing process. We take an in-depth look at:
