A “Good Enough” Warehouse
Like a virus that spreads, “Good Enough” infects a warehouse, having its managers and employees believing they are performing to a high level, when the reality is, it’s probably just “Good Enough”.
The right SKU shipped to the right place at the right time – good enough. Inventory is on the shelf that we can pull when we need it – good enough. Accident free, under budget, exceeding sales, compliant – all good enough. But when was “good enough” really good enough? Aren’t we seeking excellence?
The Leaders in warehouse education and research, WERC, have developed a two-day qualitative process assessment program to validate best practices in the warehouse. This assessment program differs from others in that:
· It’s performed by WERC, a non-bias entity.
· It’s the only qualitative process assessment for warehouses.
· It assessment offers details not provided from other certifications.
· It complements and even accelerates LEAN and Six-Sigma initiatives.
With the assessment you receive access to the auditor before, during, and after the audit; an assessment of 114 processes in your warehouse; a comprehensive 150 page report that prioritizes opportunities and identifies gaps in processes; a facilitiated benchmarking discussion; certification and recognition as a best practice warehouse (minimum score must be obtained).
You’d never tell your customer you’re just “Good Enough”; you’d tell them you’re “Excellent”. And with an assessment and certification status from WERC you’ll have the data to prove it. Anything less just isn’t good enough.
