"Adding value through industry partnerships".
Supply chain management is a growing and rapidly evolving area of employment being shaped by international competition. If resources - people, money, machinery, facilities, material and information - are to be used wisely, operations management personnel must be familiar with computer technology, quantitative methods, and planning and problem-solving techniques useful in analyzing business systems. Operations management personnel must also have computer and analytical skills, keep abreast of current technology and know when to incorporate new technology into their organization. In addition, they need excellent communication skills to work with everyone from those on the assembly line to those in top management.
APICS has supported a hostel/orphanage in India. Watch their visit there.
By partnering with industry we ensure that we are up to date with the latest developments in the field.
