Lean Materials, Warehouse & Logistics Management

Assist you in processing all goods movements and in maintaining current stock inventories



Lean in material handling and control, from the shop floor and out into the extended supply chain, needs to be reexamined for two reasons. First, the
majority of lean efforts to date have been based on tools and their deployment. Instead, lean should be about principles, or thinking, including the
constant progress toward an image of the ideal state of the process. Many companies state this in training but in practice the focus is still on the tools.

The second reason is that lean in material management has always been an extension of lean in manufacturing. Just copying or extending lean
manufacturing can be a mistake. Instead, material-handling managers need to take a fresh look at what lean material management is all about.
Learn key concepts which must be integrated into any lean approach to material management.

This course will demonstrate how warehouse operations are a key enabler to a successful supply chain implementation and the s tarting point for a
transformation. It is critical to manage safety, quality and efficiency. Learn to leverage the lean supply chain modifications to improve customer
responsiveness and reduce operating costs and in doing so contributing to a supply chain that create a competitive advantage for a company. To
accomplish this goal, we must bring lean principles into the warehouse and distribution center.

Lean Logistics, simply put, can be described as a way to recognize and eliminate wasteful activities from the supply chain in order to increase
product flow and speed. In order to achieve Leaner Logistics; organizations need to implement leaner thinking. Organizations that incorporate lean
thinking into their supply chain can benefit from improved customer service, reduced environmental impact by reducing waste and even overall
corporate citizenship.


Youll learn how to implement a lean material-handling system for purchased parts that delivers precise quantities of parts, precisely when theyre
needed, to precisely where theyre needed the fingertips of production operators.
