This article reports on a survey of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) carried out by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport that members felt were high on their list of priorities. Resulting from this survey, the first workshop, promoted by the Warehousing & Materials Handling Forum and sponsored by Link 51, brings together three speakers to present a KPI subject in a workshop environment - allowing interaction between all the participants. The workshops will cover fill rates, productivity, and quality. Tony Smith, Operations Director RS Components, will explore the techniques and methods used to satisfy an order. Bob Williams, Managing Director LPC Logistics, will cover topics that include manpower planning tools, matching hours to work and case studies of previous assignments. Spicers DDC Director Rob Branigan will show the range of initiatives that are used in making sure that the promise has been delivered, including continual improvement programmes and the role of International Organization for Standardization quality standards. The day will conclude with a visit to Link 5I's factory including a tour of the production line.
