The process of auditing warehouse performance is sometimes ignored and frequently misunderstood. It is far more than a practice of giving grades, dispensing discipline or benchmarking. Warehousing is deceptively simple. Many believe that the function is so basic that any manager can run an effective warehouse; but when the operation does not run smoothly, they do not understand why. Just as people get sick, warehouses have the ability to slip into trouble. Typically, the trouble does not strike suddenly, but creeps in almost imperceptibly, and is not noticed until it is difficult to correct.
