Tour hosted by Ben Smith, Operations Manager - Wilmington Facility

For millions of people around the world, Polaris has become synonymous with adventure and passion, in both work and play. For more than 60-years, Polaris has been making high-quality, breakthrough products - whether it's launching the snowmobile industry, reinventing ATV categories year after year, developing the first purpose-built military vehicles or introducing a radical 3-wheel moto-roadster.

Join us for a tour of Polaris's 360,000 square foot Wilmington, OH site. Opened in 2013 this site houses more than 12,000 SKU's and serves a network of more than 11,000 dealers East of the Mississippi. The site employes a staff of 60+ employees that pick and ship 8,000 lines per day on one shift. With an impressive turnaround time, every order received by 1:00 pm EST is shipped same day.

Operation Metrics & Measurements - Measuring to Improve

Presenter: Joseph Tillman, Senior Researcher, Supply Chain Visions & Lead Analyst for the WERC Annual Benchmarking Study

In addition to the tour Joe Tillman, WERC Researcher and APQC Principal Research Lead, Supply Chain will be on hand to present an in-depth look at the recent findings of WERC's Annual DC Measures Study. Every year for the past 13 years WERC has conducted this invaluable benchmarking study. The study helps practitioners gain a better understanding of key distribution metrics and how performance has changed over time.

What you will gain from this presentation:

- Overall understanding of the top 12 most commonly tracked DC measures and what constitutes best-in-class, median, and poor performance for the top 12 measures.

- An easy to use seven step process to maximize your benchmarking efforts to ensure you are driving the results by practicing your processes.
