      The Certificate Program in Supply Change Management

      The Certificate Program in Supply Chain Management (Thursdays, 8:30am - 12:30pm) The model of supply chain management is based on the idea that almost every product that reaches an end-user represents the collective efforts of numerous organizations. These organizations are referred to together as the supply chain. Supply chain management (SCM) is a systematic approach to managing the flow of materials through every phase including product development, sourcing, production span functions, and logistics, as well as how to manage the information to coordinate these activities. About the program This five-course certificate program will provide the concepts, processes, and strategies used in SCM to increase efficiency, reduce costs, facilitate a competitive infrastructure, improve customer service, and develop collaboration between suppliers and business. Who should attend? This program will benefit a wide array of professionals: marketing, sales, engineering, quality, purchasing, planning, production, finance, shipping/receiving, consultants and small business owners. Consultants seeking to add new supply chain management skills, as well as those seeking to take on new roles and responsibilities, will also profit from this training. Send a cross-functional team to obtain maximum benefit for your organization!  (1) Basics of Inventory Management—To most organizations inventory is one of the more visible and tangible aspects of doing business. Beginning with the management of suppliers delivering raw materials to goods in various levels of completion in the production process and management and delivery of finished goods in the distributions channel, each type represents money tied up until the inventory becomes purchased products. The workshop provides a broad overview of basic concepts and good inventory management strategies. March 7, 2019. (2) Physical Inventory—This workshop will discuss what works and what doesn't as the participant learns the essential preparation steps and activities to perform in advance. These activities include everything from cleanup and sorting to working with auditors. The best physical inventories require the best, most thorough, preparation. The participant will also learn how to keep the physical inventory under control once it starts. From tracking of tags to weigh scales and facility maps to handling recounts, this course guides the way. March 21, 2019 (3) Material Requirements Planning and Bills of Material—To effectively use a Material Requirements Planning (MRP) system, it is essential to understand how bills of material (BOMs) are structured and how MRP calculates requirements. This course includes instruction and exercises so students can practice these important concepts. From structuring simple BOMs to creating phantom bills, modular bills, and super bills, the participant will learn many ways to use BOMs, how to calculate material requirements, and some common action/exception messages that MRP systems frequently include.

It is appropriate for management, sales, purchasing, forecasting, materials management, operations personnel, shipping/receiving and any other supply chain function tangent to the distribution activity. April 4, 2019 (5) Cycle Counting—In this workshop, the participants will learn how to implement or improve a cycle counting program and what the real purpose of cycle counting is: finding and fixing the causes of inventory errors.
