Metrics – How Do You Measure Up?

Featured Speakers:
Karl B. Manrodt, Associate Professor of Logistics, Georgia Southern University
Kate Vitasek, Managing Partner, Supply Chain Visions

Peter Bradley, Editorial Director, DC Velocity

Moderated by Peter Bradley, editorial director of DC VELOCITY, this informative session features Karl B. Manrodt, associate professor of logistics at Georgia Southern University, and Kate Vitasek, managing partner of Supply Chain Visions. Karl and Kate will present the results of their fifth annual study on warehouse metrics.

The research looks at how DC managers are using warehouse metrics—measures such as on-time shipments, inventory accuracy, picking accuracy, warehouse capacity used, cycle times, fill rates, and employee turnover—to improve operational performance.

Conducted in conjunction with the Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) and DC VELOCITY, this webcast helps take the guesswork out of benchmarking and provides key information on how you can effectively measure your own operation's performance.

Read taking the measure of metrics, by Karl B. Manrodt and Kate Vitasek, from the April 2008 issue of DC VELOCITY.
