I have worked in Production, Engineering, Operations and Lean Sigma (CI) for 20 years and now have transitioned to Warehouse operations and transformation. This book is well written with enough technical aspect of a real working operation with concepts and ideas; it does not pretend to be the only way to do things but allows the reader to expend their knowledge and make their own way forward. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in warehousing.
