APICS Certification Study Materials (Smith)

This guide was designed to direct University of Houston students to materials needed to prepare for the APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) exam.

Module 1: Basics of Supply Chain Management

The basic concepts of managing the complete flow of materials in a supply chain from suppliers to customers are covered in the Basics module. Supply chain concepts are introduced and basic terminology emphasized, as are relationships among activities in the supply chain. Knowledge of the material in this module is assumed as a prerequisite for the other APICS CPIM modules, which cover similar topics but in much greater depth.
