Training Brief:

Distribution centers (DC’s) are an integral part of the supply chain. With the arrival of the logistics supply chain philosophy the distribution center has taken on the strategic role of attaining the logistics goals of shorter cycle times, lower inventories, lower costs, and improved customer service levels. This course covers a structured approach for DC performance analysis and optimization so as to achieve optimum service levels at the lowest cost to serve.

Participants will gain insight into the strategic role of the DC in the supply chain. Participants will also learn the key factors influencing DC performance including optimum use of space, optimum use of handling and storage equipment, inventory location and accessibility and labour efficiency as well as key tradeoffs in the DC including between space and time. Participants will learn a structured approach to DC performance analysis and performance improvement using tools, techniques and software designed for this purpose including heat mapping, age analysis, affinity analysis and product slotting and picking optimisation tools.

Participants will be exposed to real life DC performance optimisation case studies, from various industries, including approaches used and results achieved.
