Setting KPI (daily, monthly, yearly), can include the following:
Cycle count: improper storage location, inventory variance, inventory amount adjustment, inventory speed
Daily, monthly meetings
Daily meeting: organize the warehouse principal on each weekday morning for five minutes. At the meeting, the head of each function, including warehousing, delivery, cycle counting, and so on, each briefly describes the KPI of their team's previous day. For example, the delivery team tells the accuracy rate of delivery, the storage, whether there are parts placed in the wrong storage location. Delivery team said delivery accuracy, cycle inventory, inventory accuracy, inventory speed, and so on. Note that, in the five minute meeting, just on the working day before KPI review, share information, and not to discuss specific problems, because it will take longer time and warehouse every morning is usually very busy. At the end of the meeting, the warehouse manager can select the 3 problems that are encountered that day, if any, to be carried out by way of PDCA. Some problems can be solved in coordination within the warehouse department, and some problems need to be coordinated in the supply chain department meeting, even at a previous level factory meeting.
