Velky Potraviny is a discount grocery store chain in the Czech Republic. The firm strives to be the market leader in providing a wide assortment of grocery products at the lowest possible price. The move toward a market economy has prompted rapid expansion, and the Velky distribution center is nearing capacity for the 37 outlets it presently serves in the greater Prague area. Velky has realized the need for efficiency in its warehouse operations. Velky further recognizes that the distribution center employees are an integral part of the company and critical for efficient warehouse operations, hence the need to address the performance measurement system of the workers. Velky cannot independently address the issue of worker performance measurement without addressing the inter-related issues of the warehouse, namely, the layout of the warehouse, flows within the warehouse, capacity expansion, managing deliveries to the outlets, and its overall link to the corporate goal.
