Your path to getting ahead

The effective management of warehouse operations and inventory control are critical to the supply chain of any organisation. The ability to maintain a smooth, constant and efficient flow of goods and services to industry and society provides a significant challenge in terms of processes, organisation and cost.

Managers are continually trying to balance increasing customer satisfaction with reducing inventory levels and costs.

The warehouse has always been seen as an expensive cost centre however it is fundamental to achieving the perfect order. Very few companies are in a position to supply on a Just In Time basis and therefore the storage of products becomes inevitable.

The fundamental aspect is to ensure that the minimum amount of stock is held to satisfy the majority of demand at an acceptable cost. This results in a number of trade-offs within the warehouse which must be balanced to ensure maximum efficiency.

Technology continues to advance in this area with sophisticated software and hardware products being introduced into the market.  Warehouse automation is increasing in popularity along with both voice and robotics technologies.

These issues amongst many others are analysed in the course, with case studies and multi-media learning materials providing a rich, relevant and practical experience with real-world application.
