ASK DANNY Funkhouser, the general manager of Wal-Mart's Print and Mail Distribution Center (PMDC), what role his in-plant plays in the success of the country's leading retailer, and he replies: "benchmarking." By being competitive in pricing and speed, Funkhouser explains, the in-plant keeps its competition in line.
