First Day in warehouse.
• Introduction to warehouse staff. Placed with warehouse personnel to learn truck offload procedures.
• Unload inbound delivery trucks, learning proper stacking, brand and sizing.
• Learn how to read manifest for inbound delivery.
After inbound truck has been unloaded you will proceed to put away stock.
• Learn where each tire brand is located in the warehouse.
• Learn how to put tires in order by size when placing in the bins.
*please note that size order is currently different depending on brand of tire.
• Learn proper procedure for efficient stock handling. This means filling in-stock first, then filling overstock. The goal is to clear the dock as quickly as possible, as we usually receive multiple shipments per day. There will be time to put away overstock in the afternoon, usually.
• Learn proper stacking (barreling) procedures for safe storage of stock on third tier of the aisles.
• Learning to look up stock in the computer system. This will help greatly in resolving inventory problems should you be pulling stock for delivery, or you run into misplaced stock.
• It is key that you learn the warehouse layout during your training period, as you will begin pulling stock and performing much of the warehouse maintenance on your own from time to time. We expect that you should be able to work independently by the end of your training period.
Once initial inbound order has been put away, you will need to check with your trainer or supervisor for any “special” projects. This will usually include checking in-stock levels and refilling from overstock.
Please make sure that when you are putting stock away you do not mix sizes or types. It is extremely important that the warehouse stock not become mixed, as this impacts not only our inventory counts, but also our accuracy in delivering the correct products to our clients.…...

Data Warehouses

...data that is stored in a data warehouse that is used for the company’s employees. The employees will pull data that is needed each day to do their daily tasks. The company handles with several different parts that make up one part. Each part is labeled and has a barcode so that the part can be identified. The system that holds all of the data is basically a data warehouse that when an employee needs certain information about a single part can be retrieved from the data warehouse. The data warehouse is also used to follow the vendors to see how well they are doing. What I mean by see how they are doing is to follow how many good parts they build versus the bad parts that are built and sent to the company. The data that is recorded when a bad part is found leads to an inspection of the parts. When the inspection starts there are required steps that are followed and entered into the database. When this data is entered into the database it can show how many parts that have been inspected and how many were good and how many bad. With this company’s regular database that is being used every day and the data warehouse being used to see how the parts are being handle and how the vendors are doing, there are a lot of variables that are put in place for the company. When the employee needs certain data about a vendor to see what parts they are building then the employee can retrieve this information from the data warehouse. The employee can also......

...a cargo airline with its head office in Kuala Lumpur International Airport (KUL) in Sepang, Selangor, Malaysia. It is a cargo division of its parent company Malaysia Airlines that operates scheduled, charter air cargo services as well as airport to seaport cargo logistics via ground transportation. Challenges i. Outdated machinery and systems ii. Machinery is not fully operated iii. Warehouse design is not systematic iv. Volumes of tonnes v. Quality services and timing As you can see MASkargo’s vision is “To be your preferred air cargo partner” and the mission is “to ensure timely and cost effective transport of cargo from the point of acceptance to the point of delivery”, but with challenges that they have to face, it is really hard for MASkargo to achieve their long term objectives of becoming a major force in global air cargo handling. Last Thursday (October 25th, 2012), I can see that everything is in disorder and it is not systematic in term of the equipment, warehouse layout, services and etc. I’ve been told by one of the officer in the warehouse about MASkargo and Lodige Industries. Both signed a multi-million ringgit agreement which will redefine cutting-edge technology, elevating cargo handling system to a whole new level. It will be completed in five phases which is Diagnosis, Design and Development; Initial Repair and Modifications; IT System Implementation; Refurbishment and finally Enhancement. The multi-million ringgit agreement......

The Warehouse

...The warehouse is the most common type of storage though other forms do exist (e.g., storage tanks, computer server farms). Some warehouses are massive structures that simultaneously support the unloading of numerous in-bound trucks and railroad cars containing suppliers’ products while at the same time loading multiple trucks for shipment to customers. The different types of warehouses that are to be required will affect the decision make to either build or to buy. This is because it will have to depend on the availability of the warehouses and its uses. For example, Cold Chain’s warehouses are not widely available and are usually located near the port. Below are the different types of warehouses: * Private Warehouse - This type of warehouse is owned and operated by channel suppliers and resellers and used in their own distribution activity. For instance, a major retail chain may have several regional warehouses supplying their stores or a wholesaler will operate a warehouse at which it receives and distributes products. * Public Warehouse - The public warehouse is essentially space that can be leased to solve short-term distribution needs. Retailers that operate their own private warehouses may occasionally seek additional storage space if their facilities have reached capacity or if they are making a special, large purchase of products. For example, retailers may order extra merchandise to prepare for in-store sales or order a large volume of a product that......

Warehouses are used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers,transport businesses, customs, etc. They are usually large plain buildings in industrial areas of cities and towns and villages. They usually have loading docks to load and unload goods from trucks. Sometimes warehouses are designed for the loading and unloading of goods directly from railways, airports, or seaports. They often have cranes and forklifts for moving goods, which are usually placed on ISOstandard pallets loaded into pallet racks. Stored goods can include any raw materials, packing materials, spare parts, components, or finished goods associated with agriculture, manufacturing and production. ------------------------------------------------- Warehouse function[edit] India House, Manchester.

...How training and development supports business growth Introduction Tesco is the largest British retailer and is also the world’s third largest grocery retailer with outlets across Europe, USA and Asia. The business began in 1919 with one man, Jack Cohen, selling groceries from a stall in the East End of London. Jack bought surplus stocks of tea from a company called T.E. Stockwell. T.E. Stockwell and Cohen combined their names to brand the tea Cohen originally sold – TESCO tea. In 1929, the first Tesco store opened in north London. Tesco has expanded since then by a combination of acquisition of new stores, retail services and by adapting to the needs of consumers. Tesco has net profits (before tax) of around £3 billion. Tesco’s primary aim is ‘to serve the customer’. Keeping existing customers happy is important, as they are more likely to return. This is more cost effective for the business than acquiring new ones. In the UK Tesco now has over 2,200 stores ranging from the large Extra hypermarket style stores to small Tesco Express high street outlets. Tesco’s original product range of grocery and general merchandise has diversified to include banking, insurance services, electrical goods as well as telephone equipment and airtime. This move towards ‘one stop shopping’ means customers can meet all their purchasing needs from one place. Tesco has also expanded its customer base through its Tesco.com website which attracts one million regular users. As the company has grown...

Warehouse Development

...August - Expansion into Australia with the acquisition of Clint's Crazy Bargains and Silly Solly's. The two chains operate along similiar lines to The Warehouse with Clint’s Crazy Bargains trading in New South Wales, ACT and Victoria, and Silly Solly’s in Queensland. The stores will progressively be re-badged as Clint's Warehouse, The Warehouse and Solly's Warehouse. The Clint’s/Solly’s group has 115 stores and six distribution centres. However, the stores are much smaller than New Zealand Warehouse stores, averaging 1,100 square metres compared with The Warehouse average of 3,677 square metres. The group is hoping to gradually increase this average sales area over time. The acquisition makes good sense - both chains are similiar to The Warehouse and the group is hoping to benefit from economies of scale, whilst improving the profitability of the Australian operations by introducing the latest IT and inventory systems. It will also provide The Warehouse with a valuable opportunity for further growth and expansion. Following the acquisition, The Warehouse Group has been listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. 2001 August - The Warehouse Financial Services launched. 2002 The Warehouse celebrates its 20th birthday. 2003 June - CEO Greg Muir resigns over differences with the board on the company’s future direction. "Mr Muir's resignation came as a result of ongoing discussions in which the board and the CEO had differing philosophies......

The Warehouse

...Case 4: Bradford’s Warehouse From what is stated in the case, it is difficult to determine if the allegations against Mr. Bradford derive from jealousy or from valid injustices of favoritism. However, it is slightly suspicious and telling that the executive who made the allegations is unnamed and unwilling to stand by his statements. Under the presumption that jealousy is the driver for the allegations, it is possibly that this executive is misinterpreting Mr. Ingersall’s objective that highly classified and top contracts with the government are required to have the highest performing teams as favoritism. High performing teams have been identified along the Team Performance Curve as a “Real Team” in addition to members having commitment that supersedes the team and performs beyond other teams and expectations. Bradford’s Warehouse members appear to be such a team as the reporters’ remarks of “singled out” and “unprevailed in the industry”. However, in order to have a high performing team, the team must have the six characteristics of a real team and have an element of cohesion. Bradford’s team by being located and working together on assigned tasks and being referred to as a unit, “Bradford’s Warehouse”, fulfill the requirements of mutual interactions, reciprocal influence, sense of identification, and common goals. However, some of the tasks assigned are complicated are require task interdependence: designing and building a military contract item would require mechanical......

Bradford's Warehouse

...Bradford’s Warehouse: Bradford was a successful leader for several reasons. According to Schreisheim’s, Garbage In, Garbage Out Model, Bradford selected good employees, rather than attempting to create them, by ‘borrowing’ talent from other Ingersoll divisions. After evaluating the staffing requirements, he makes his employee selection based on their ‘technical and conceptual ability, human relations ability and interpersonal skills, and intrinsic work motivation’; “these persons are particularly selected for their past accomplishment, inventive ideas, ability to work rapidly, and their probable compatibility with existing Warehouse personnel.” Another success factor is attributed to specific Cultural Dimensions Bradford is characterized by: Power Distance, Assertiveness, In-Group Collectivism and Performance Orientation. He has definitely positioned himself on another dimension, commanding power and authority not only with his subordinates, but with his peers and most significantly with his superior, Mr. Ingersoll. Bradford has enough ‘power’ and influence over the president of the company to have all his demands satisfied, ‘Bob Bradford has a direct telephone line to our president, Mr. Ingersoll. When Bradford wants something he simply phone Ingersoll and gets it!.......” The degree of assertiveness and power-fueled determination allows him to be ‘forceful, aggressive, and tough, permitting him to ‘indiscriminately ‘raid’ other projects for......

...helped with phonemic training, mnemonics, setting desired skills to familiar tunes, and linking connection to cultural themes. Research has shown that preschool children taught with an early exposure to music through games and songs showed an IQ advantage of 10 to 20 points over those children taught without exposure to the songs. In the same study, students at age 15, had higher reading and mathematics scores in comparison to children without musical experiences. Brain studies indicate that exposure to music alters and increases brain function to make the necessary connections for higher order thinking. Post-intervention data indicated an increase in students' memory recall and emotional involvement. All these increases promoted the motivational connection, which encouraged additional success. Post-intervention data also indicated that the students learned the material so well that they were able to transfer skills across the curriculum into other subject areas, and into their personal lives.
