BASICS OF SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT is an introductory course for production and inventory management personnel and CPIM candidates. This course 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. In addition, the course addresses types of manufacturing systems, demand management and forecasting, master planning, material requirements planning, capacity management, production activity control, purchasing, inventory management, physical distribution, quality management, lean/just-in-time manufacturing, and the theory of constraints

The Basics of Supply Chain Management (BSCM) course is the first module toward a CPIM certification, and because basic supply chain definitions and concepts are covered, BSCM is also an excellent course to take to build your fundamental knowledge on Supply Chain Management in preparation for pursuing a Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP) certification.
