Course Overview

Warehouses are an integral part of a solid supply chain. Information provided through them is critical to all functions of the business (e.g. finance, sales, marketing and the rest of the supply chain); hence, stores with professional processes can easily be a winning edge to any business. This program begins with an outline of the end-to-end supply chain. This includes an overview of materials requirements planning (MRP) and inventory management and how they relate to warehouse and operations management. The program then introduces participants to the fundamentals of organizing and managing warehouse operations. The course explains all operations that are carried out within the warehouse along with their best practices (receiving, handling, storing, picking, and dispatching). In addition, warehouse infrastructure, labor, equipment, documentation cycle, and work coordination are discussed. Furthermore, the course focuses on the latest warehouse information technology and control systems, such as barcode, RFID, and WMSs. The course also covers the best quality, environment, health, and safety practices in the warehouse. Finally, some governance and control methods for maintaining a high-profile warehouse are discussed.

    We have been working with LEORON for the past two years and will be working with them again this upcoming year. The programs they delivered were fruitful and exciting and our organization has received positive feedback from the participants. What our organization aims to do is to provide at no cost training for all the private sector employees so that they may benefit from our offered programs in Innovation and Professional development. Leoron has helped us achieve this goal. We look forward to continuing this service and wish them the best of luck. Regards,
