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.
Course Content

1. Introduction to Manufacturing Planning and Control; and Enterprise Resource Planning.

2. Introduction to Demand Management and Collaborative Planning, Forecasting and Replenishment.

3. Asessment of Forecasting Information, application of Forecasting Methods (qualitative and quantitative), and assessment of Forecast Accuracy.

4. Application of Sales and Operations Planning fundamentals.

5. Application of Master Production Scheduling techniques.

6. Introduction to Material Requirements Planning concepts, order quantity calculations and transaction processing. 

7. Introduction to Capacity Requirements Planning and Scheduling.
