Tip of the Month

A Lean Warehouse is essential to a smooth supply chain

Businesses understand that controlling inventory, order fulfillment and shipping costs are essential for success. Companies are constantly striving to improve their warehouse operations by increasing agility, visibility and labor efficiency.

A lean supply chain requires the efficient flow of products in and out of the facility. A lean warehouse plays a critical role in the smooth flow in your supply chain. Inbound material logistics and outbound finished goods distribution bring together all the discrepancies and lack of flow in the entire supply chain. An efficient lean warehouse is required by stakeholders on all sides to be more productive, minimize expenses, and maintain a smooth supply chain flow.

100% service delivery is directly related to customer satisfaction while at the same time we are always looking for ways to minimize the need for storage of our products. Good inventory management is risk management in practice…

About the Program

Michigan Manufacturing Technology Center wanted to honor the contributions of our state’s manufactures so it launched the Proud to Manufacture in Michigan campaign in 2012. As a result of the overwhelming response, The Center made the campaign an official program! The goal of the program is to further support our state’s manufacturers by raising awareness of Michigan’s manufacturing community and the products made in our state.
