If you're looking to learn more about benchmarking DC performance, now's your chance. The Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) will offer "Benchmark NOW!," a seminar on analyzing and improving performance in the distribution center, next month. The seminar, scheduled for Sept. 27-28 in Oak Brook, Ill., will be led by performance measurement experts Kate Vitasek and Karl Manrodt, Ph.D., authors of WERC's 2006 DC Measures report.
"Benchmark NOW!" is intended for executives and managers who are responsible for optimizing distribution center performance. Participants will learn how to choose, set and evaluate metrics that support a company's overall business strategy; how to link benchmarking to strategy; and how to avoid common pitfalls. Attendees will leave the seminar with a strategic performance roadmap for their own companies. For more information, visit www.WERC.org.
