Warehouses play an important role in the modern supply chain and account for 24% of the total cost of the logistics and are considered as a competitive advantage in the supply chain. There must be necessary instruments to evaluate warehouse for the sake of identifying its strong and weak points so as to achieve high performance in inventory management and warehouse system which eventually helps managers make better, more effective and efficient decisions to improve the warehouse performance. There are various models for evaluating performance that the lack of a framework Specific, comprehensive and all-encompassing for evaluating spare parts warehouses is felt. Therefore, in this article, first the dimensions and indicators of the proposed framework have been determined and defined through surveying and considering different performance evaluation models and also considering the related literature in addition to considering the expert opinions in different sessions. This proposed framework includes 9 dimensions containing 10 indicators each. The final framework was prepared after assessing and evaluating its validity and reliability through using questionnaire resulted in removing the indicators that did not obtain the required scores. After evaluating the car parts warehouse based on the proposed framework criteria a roadmap is presented in order to improve the warehouse performance level of the inventory and warehouse management based on the current warehouse situation.
