In this Warehouse and Inventory Management training course working professionals will learn to efficiently control the day-to-day operations of this vital part of the supply chain process. Participants 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. Participants 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 does management as a drain on company resources view the warehouse? 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 course is for you. This course unravels the secrets of those best-in-course 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 with emphasis on Automated Storage/Automated Retrieval (AS/AR) systems.
The course starts by analyzing the current state of your operations; based on the results, the course provides a systematic, yet flexible, action plan for improvement, which involves human behaviour, process redesign, warehouse management systems, and supply chain alignment. Course materials, along with case studies, detailed examples, and thought-provoking questions will move your facility to best-in-course.
