6-2 Short Paper: Warehouse Performance Measurement Avila 2 6-2 Short Paper: Warehouse Performance Measurement 1. How can a warehouse add value to the goods in storage? A warehouse can add value to the goods in storage by creating bulk consignments, breaking bulk consignments, combining freight, smoothing supply to meet demand, improving information flow. Facilities now in days have the abilities of optimizing flow of freight throughout the functions of the warehouse in a way that can significantly reduce inventory by combining freight and packaging and assembling materials as close to the end consumer as possible. The gathering, processing, use, and sharing of information are vital to the warehousing process and can help a warehouse add value to a supply chain. The information gathered at a warehouse during the receiving, put away, order picking/packing, or dispatch process can help determine more accurate forecast with the quantities of certain materials, time spent at each process, total duration of time at warehouse, and other vital statistics that can help move products along in the warehouse (Mangan.2011).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
