The Basics of Supply Chain Management (BSCM) has been REPLACED
as an introductory course for production and inventory management personnel and CPIM candidates by
CPIM Part 1. The newly designed
CPIM Part 1 course delivers the
same knowledge and skills in a focused program and updated format that
still provides basic definitions and concepts for planning and controlling the flow of materials
into, through, and out of an organization. This updated course emphasizes the relationships among activities
and functions that occur in the supply chain as goods, services, and information move from vendors/suppliers on
the supply-side of the chain to the customers/consumers on the demand-side of the chain.
