TECHNOLOGY SUPPORT AND INNOVATION
Warehousing, Distribution Centers, and Inventory
Marketing’s “Location, Location, Location” has taken on a new meaning in today’s demand-driven supply chain. Since the next module will focus on logistics, let us take a look at how warehousing, distribution centers, and inventory support the process. The art and science of balancing too much inventory against not enough inventory is central to the conversation.
Begin with the SLP background readings to learn about warehousing and inventory trends. Then move to expert or consultant publications written within the past three years.
Provide a well-balanced assessment of how warehousing, distribution centers, and inventory can maintain a healthy and efficient supply chain according to the readings and information from at least three experts (articles, interviews, presentations, etc.). You must include three different strategies/requirements.
NOTE: No resources should be more than three years old for this SLP because the industry is changing rapidly and the goal is to remain relevant throughout your career.

Since you are engaging in research, be sure to cite and reference the sources in APA format. The paper should be written in the third person; this means words like “I,” “we,” and “you” are not appropriate. For more information see First vs. Third Person. The excessive use of quotes or unoriginal content will directly impact performance since it suggests lack of comprehension and indicates that a student may not have mastered the concepts.
