Key problems solved: Businesses are focused on maintaining and increasing profitability in times of modest revenue. The response is to stop all process improvement and technology projects and concede that “we just can't afford it now.” This line of thinking is a trap. The best time to focus on customer satisfaction, process improvement and perfect order performance is when business conditions require strong profitability. Those who manage successful warehouses and distribution operations invest in supply chain technology in good economic times to manage growth, and in a down economy to cut costs and gain competitive advantage.
