APICS is the world's leading association for supply chain management, providing education and certification programs.
One single item prevents the manufacture and shipment of any product. Manufacturers need to have all the parts and they need them at the right time and in the right quality. A seamless interaction between the planning and procurement functions ensure that shortages don’t stop us again.
During this focused, one-day workshop, you will learn the benefits of combining the material planning and purchasing functions. You will learn how Material Requirements Planning (MRP) works, what it needs to work correctly and how to use the output of MRP. In addition, you will learn how risk can be mitigated through basic contract law. Life is a constantly changing arena. Learn how combining the material planning and procurement functions will help you manage the materials in your dynamic business environment.
