Advanced Materials Storage Management - Policy and Process World Knowledge

Stores managers have strategic importance within any company. They need to know the rationale behind the processes and practices in their facility, so that they can improve them. They often need to develop new procedures that are appropriate and robust. And they need to be able to lead their staff with confidence and authority.
