A few thoughts...

(1) Response time for filling a request
(2) Claims for damaged goods
(3) Warehouse inventory as a percentage of ?? (this may be more of a business objective, but it probably influences (1) and (2))

Look back at the things that have "stung" your department/company...these might be candidates for measurable quality objectives.

Take a look at your processes in the warehouse. Ask yourself the question "what is my objective"? in each of these.

You should be able to come to a decision on what to measure that is meaningful and directly responsive to your actual objectives.

So my advice is don't try and think of something creative, let the processes tell you what it should be.

Good points Dan, and not knowing the entire situation I would also ask:

Is a measurement for warehousing required?

Would the measurement be part of Management Review and included in the business plan objectives?

Would the measurement be value added to the company?

I guess it depends on what functions are specified for the warehouse department, as defined in the quality system documentation.
