APICS® - Certified Production and Inventory Management (CPIM®)
The APICS® CPIM® is the global standard education credential program of the Association of Supply Chain Management, ASCM.
Every ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) system uses business rules originating from CPIM's® body of knowledge. Earning an APICS® CPIM® certification shows employers that as a professional you know how to effectively manage risks and disruptions, as well as leverage technology that uses data and streamline processes.
ASCM®, the Association for Supply Chain Management (formerly APICS®), is the global leader and premier source of leading-edge knowledge in operations and supply chain management. ASCM® has developed a comprehensive educational program designed for operations and supply chain professionals, and the northeastern PA campuses of Penn State University are collaborating to offer these prep programs to prepare individuals to take the certification exams.
CPIM® focuses on the mastery of an organization's internal operations and provides an in-depth understanding of the Fundamentals of Demand Management, Plan Supply, Executing the Supply Plan, Inventory Management, Continuous Improvement and Quality Management and Technologies, Strategy and S&Op and provides the knowledge to apply this information across the extended supply chain.
