									                     APICS – BASICS OF SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Course Objectives

1.     To understand the basic concepts and vocabulary at an introductory or building block level that
   is fundamental to the APICS “Body Of Knowledge”. The “Planning Hierarchy” will be introduced,
   which through this course and others hopefully to follow, will allow one to effectively evaluate and
   apply those principles integral to Materials Management and/or Supply Chain Management in the
   broadest sense of the terms.
2.     To serve as a part of the preparation process for individuals desiring to pursue the APICS
   Certification in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM), with the Basics of Supply Chain
   Management being the first segment in the national examination progression.
3.     Both to encourage students to share the best and the less effective practices from their current
   work environment as it relates to the course content, and to provide a resource network to discuss
   and to explore pragmatic and results orientated approaches to the real life materials or
   production/inventory control issues one might face daily.
