The presenter prepared a white paper to guide the planning process. Read an excerpt from "Building Your Distribution Center with Vision and a Solid Foundation" below.
"For Distribution Center managers, creating the Vision, or at least a rough understanding of the Vision, should not be a daunting task. It first starts with understanding the market that is served and the sales channel used to serve that market. That's right, the Vision must be customer focused and not internally focused. For example, a customer focused Vision in the health care supply industry using a Direct to Consumer sales channel might include 100% Order Accuracy or Zero-Defect Shipments. On the other hand, a non-customer focused Vision might include 100% Inventory Accuracy, unless of course an improperly accounted inventory negatively affects the customer more than it does the inventory manager (I doubt it). Again, the Vision must be in line with the demands of the market."
