Overview

Course Description
This course will introduce students to the complete manufacturing planning and control process. Topics will include: demand management; forecasting; sales and operations planning; master scheduling; distribution planning; and enterprise resource planning. In class simulations will be used to provide students with practical experience and application of the tools and concepts taught. After completion of this course, students should possess the required knowledge required to begin studying for the APICS - CPIM examinations.
