Basics of Supply Chain - CPIM Part 1 APIC 1161

Production and Inventory Control Part-time Studies Course

Course details

As the entry-level learning program, CPIM Part 1 introduces the material presented in depth in CPIM Part 2. Part 1 introduces the definitions and concepts for planning and controlling the flow of products and services into, through, and out of an organization. Many of the concepts in Part 1 are expanded upon in Part 2. Part 1 explains fundamental relationships among the various activities that may occur in the supply chain network from suppliers to customers. This includes topics like demand management, plan supply, execute supply plan, inventory management, and continuous improvement /quality management and technologies The APICS CPIM program utilizes two exams in a progression from CPIM Part 1 – which covers the basics, including definitions and problem solving – to advanced CPIM Part 2 where we review these concepts in actions and how these affect the firm's ability to compete in the marketplace. It is strongly recommended that candidates complete CPIM Part 1 before tackling the more advanced topics in CPIM Part 2. If you follow this sequence of the two exams, you will increase your understanding and probability of success.
