What's the secret to success? According to an upcoming seminar offered by the Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC), it's making the most of all three of your basic resources: space, equipment, and labor. "Achieving Warehouse Success: Your Comprehensive Guide to Managing an Effective Operation" will cover how to integrate these three resources for maximum effectiveness.
In the seminar, attendees will learn how to identify the precise problems that are most troublesome in their warehouse operations and how to prioritize work demands. They will also learn about the leadership and communication skills required for managing people, boosting morale, and solving labormanagement conflicts. The course will address how to lay out a warehouse to achieve good space utilization and optimum flow. Finally, attendees will look at how to select the best storage, handling, and order picking equipment and technology for their particular needs.
The seminar will be held from Sept. 16-18 in Houston. For more information, visit WERC's Web site
