" " 1. Process Evaluation Guide

This sample guide provides an overview of process evaluation and includes an example process description chart.

 Sample steps include: complete the heading, list all tasks in detail, and complete the remaining columns. Analyzing process description charts can be extremely valuable because they contain detailed lists of the tasks involved in the processes you wish to improve. The summary portion of the chart is immediately useful as it lists the following measurables: the number and time of operations, transfers, reviews, storage and delays. These measurables should be the primary focus of your analysis.

5. Warehouse and Storage Key Performance Indicators (KPIs)

Leading practices companies have been quick to identify the warehouse as a key link in the supply chain and, hence, an opportunity to add value both in terms of enhancing product customization and improving customer service. In fact, many companies view the warehousing phase as a last chance to satisfy the ever-growing customer demands for newer products and faster delivery. As a result, leading practices companies today are making concerted efforts to redefine their warehouses from passive storage facilities to active agents of supply chain efficiency–specifically, as centers for product transformation and flow-through distribution. 

This tool outlines leading practices and key performance indicators for the warehouse and storage process.
