  The Basics of Supply Chain Management  (BSCM) course has been developed to answer the need for fundamental education in chapters and industry.  Everyone working in industry needs to have a basic understanding of the planning and control of flow of materials into, through and out of organizations.  The course will provide that understanding.  In addition, those who want to become certified by APICS need a fundamentals course on material, resource planning, scheduling, and control.  This course will assist them in preparing for the BSCM exam.  Topics covered in the Basics of Supply Chain Management course includes types of manufacturing systems, demand management and forecasting, master planning, materials requirement planning, capacity management, production activity control, purchasing, inventory management, physical distribution, quality management, lean manufacturing, and the theory of constraints.   There are ten sessions.  The time and day per week will be based upon the time that you and your associate are available.  I will have the invoice prepared after your associate decides to enroll.  Best Regards  Wilbert Owens, CPIM, CSCP, VP Education, APVA-APICS
