Lean Warehousing
October 1-3, 2013 | Atlanta | 2.1 CEUs September 23-25, 2014 | Atlanta | 2.1 CEUs Cut waste and improve warehousing efficiencies with the proven principles of lean management.
The ultimate goal of lean thinking is reducing our reliance on warehousing. However, the fact remains that warehousing and distribution center management is necessary because of extended lead times and unbalanced business process connections. Consequently, we want to manage warehousing as efficiently as possible. To accomplish this goal, we must bring lean principles into the warehouse and the distribution center. This course covers the lean principles that will help participants reduce waste in warehousing operations by as much as 25%, manage and reduce the flow of inventory, instill disciplined processes, and effectively use visual management.

2013-2014 Supply Chain Management Courses

Maximize todays productivity for a profitable tomorrow

Engineering the Warehouse


April 1-3, 2014 | Atlanta | 2.1 CEUs Address modern warehouse trade-offs between space and time in optimizing and managing your warehouse.
The requirement for high levels of customer service and increasing numbers of SKUs and high labor costs have dramatically increased the complexity of warehouse operations. Its no longer sufficient to manage a warehouse based on ABC classification of SKUs, which treats all those in a category as if they were identical. Instead, each decision such as where to store or pick products, must be based on careful engineering and economic analysis. Each SKU must identify its own cheapest, fastest path through the warehouse to the customer, and then compete with all the other SKUs for the necessary resources. This results in efficient warehouse operations finely tuned to patterns of customer orders.

Inventory Planning and Management


April 29-May 1, 2014 | Atlanta | 2.1 CEUs Efficiently provide the inventory necessary for good customer service while minimizing the inventory resulting from poor supply chain management.
Supply chain management and logistics encompasses all the activities involved in getting products to consumers including planning, storing, moving, and accounting for inventory. Inventory availability is the most important aspect of customer service, and the cost of inventory is one of the most important entries on a companys balance sheet. Recognition of the balance sheet implications of inventory in supply chain management has launched a variety of industry-wide inventory reduction initiatives. Despite all these initiatives to reduce inventory in the supply chain, inventory levels for most companies have remained the same or increased. This course will teach you to minimize inventory through understanding your customers needs.

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

Exchange space for time to better meet business objectives Understand when to use either dedicated or shared storage Identify the most convenient locations in a warehouse Identify and use patterns in customer orders to speed fulfillment Evaluate warehouse performance

Optimally size and stock a forward pick area Understand the best practices in order-picking Understand how to think about automation Evaluate and choose a Warehouse Management System

Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

A Preview of Course Topics

Understand the use of inventory throughout the supply chain Develop inventory strategies to support business strategies Analyze tradeoffs between inventory costs and customer service levels Determine how to measure and improve inventory performance

Understand and manage variability that impacts inventory Evaluate how to tradeoff transportation and inventory costs Determine how to optimize inventory levels to meet service requirements Understand the basics of inventory and forecasting technology

Management of warehouse fundamentals: Space and time Storage policies: dedicated and shared, and their use Warehouse analytics: discover opportunities for improvement Size and stock a forward area for split-pallet and split-case picks

Pallet operations and layoutOrderpicking in high-volume and in low-volume environments Benchmarking warehouse performance Maintaining inventory accuracy Warehouse Management Systems Issues and trends in automation

2013-2014 Health and Humanitarian Logistics Courses

Positively impacting humanitarian response through improved processes

Systems Operations in Health and Humanitarian Response


Sept. 11-13, 2013 | Atlanta | 2.1 CEUs 2014 Date TBD
Despite having common goals, the lack of cooperation and coordination between organizations active in humanitarian response often results in inefficiencies. As a result, a systems view of a humanitarian effort is needed to ensure appropriate use of scarce resources to meet the goals at hand. This course will focus on conceptual and modeling skills to understand and effectively manage health delivery and humanitarian response from a systems perspective. Models will address system characteristics (e.g. demand dependencies) that drive system dynamics and policies to regulate performance. Course topics include methods for improving coordination and collaboration, addressing demand dependencies, and reliably measuring and evaluating system performance.

Pre-planning Strategy for Health and Humanitarian Organizations


2014 Date TBD | Atlanta | 2.15 CEUs
Relief requirements for public health and humanitarian events are in general both unknown in size and type, and are affected by dynamic and hard to measure factors. Preparing for long-term development and response to emergency events often involves uncertainty in timing, scope, or scale. This course will examine methods and models for making pre-planning decisions and explore the significant value that is obtained through informed decision-making in advance of an unpredictable event or long-term development.

Tactical Decision Making in Public Health and Humanitarian Response
