Have you ever felt like you were being squeezed dry by your single biggest customer? If so, then you've been victimized by a soroptomy. Are you unclear about which warehousing strategy would work best for your operation? Then maybe you should look into the differences between pick-to-carton, pick-to-clear, pick-to-display, pick-to light and pick-to-voice. Do you feel like you're stuck in a closed-loop of acronyms that all sound pretty much the same but have very different meanings, such as FIFO, FILO, HIFO, Hi-Lo, IFO, LIFO and LILO?

The book is compiled by Philip Obal, president of IDII, a consulting firm focused on supply chain solutions.
