MODULE #1:   Basics of Supply Chain Management - Entry Module
The basic concepts in managing the complete flow of materials in a supply chain from suppliers to customers are covered in the Basics module. Supply chain concepts are introduced and basic terminology emphasized, as are relationships among activities in the supply chain. Knowledge of the material in this module is assumed as a prerequisite for the other APICS CPIM modules, which cover similar topics but in a much greater depth.


MODULE #2: Consolidated to one (1) module that includes the four (4) previous modules detailed below.


Master Planning of Resources - Core Competency Module
The topics of demand management, sales and operations planning, and master scheduling are examined in-depth in this module. Both supply and demand planning for mid- to long-term independent demand are discussed. Priority planning and capacity planning issues are also addressed.


Detailed Scheduling and Planning – Core Competency Module

Execution and Control of Operations – Core Competency Module
The principles, approaches, and techniques needed to schedule, control, measure, and evaluate the effectiveness of production operations are covered in this module. A broad range of production operations are reviewed including project, batch, line, continuous, and remanufacturing environments.
