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.
