Inventory + Storage = Profits

Key supply chain trends for 2017 and beyond

Using examples, Mark Wilkinson will discuss the formula: Inventory + Storage = Profits. He will demonstrate why as markets are becoming more demanding and ecommerce continues to drive manufacturing trends, the need to optimize raw materials is growing. The session will also share how improvements to materials management can benefit your business, why an intelligent Warehouse Management System (WMS) can impact raw materials control and how effective management of raw materials can improve efficiencies in the warehouse and production operations.

Eric Carter will discuss how omnichannel retailing and ecommerce continue to challenge the traditional distribution centre business model and why this means there has never been a greater need for warehouse optimization. He will present why improvements to stock accuracy will reduce inventory balances; how staffing or resourcing issues can be removed by replacing manual paper based processes with mobile devices and why it is necessary to decrease the order to dispatch cycle in line with customer expectations.
