Introduction

      Traditionally, a warehouse had been regarded as a passive storage facility for inventories of raw materials, supplies, spare parts, or finished goods. Today, however, new roles are being assigned to warehouses, such as rearranging delivered goods into customer-specific product packages. Some are even performing certain functions that would normally be associated with manufacturing plants, such as final assembly, finishing, and repacking. All are expected to add value to a company’s supply chain.

Course Description

      This is a course on managing warehouses in order to maximize their productivity and contribution to operating effectiveness and efficiency, particularly in the area of logistics. The course leads to an identification of a set of strategies and best practices that have been proven to work in the area of warehouse management.

It is intended for warehouse managers and supervisors, materials managers, plant managers whose plants have supporting warehouses, and managers of distribution centers and depots.

      The principles and best practices described in this course take into consideration the current environment of the COVID-19 pandemic and the appropriate precautions and countermeasures are incorporated in the discussion.
