Implementing Continuous Process Improvement (CPI) will position you for success in a hypercompetitive market.
The most critical challenges facing modern businesses today are twofold: how to adapt to rapidly changing market conditions and evolving consumer expectations. The strategy that worked last year — or even last month — may require an overhaul to meet current demands.
Weathering these changes requires flexibility—not only from systems such as your warehouse management system (WMS), but also from the people and processes supporting your supply chain. The issue is that achieving operational potential is a moving target. There’s no mountain top to summit. Rather, it’s an ongoing pursuit of lowering costs and moving inventory more efficiently to meet your customers’ rising expectations. The organizations that do this best don’t just buy new technology; they look for efficiencies in the day-to-day details.
