Execution & Control of Operations

Shop Floor Sequencing & Scheduling
Certified in Production & Inventory Management

We currently have no scheduled session for this Training Course. If you are interested in running this course, please contact our Training Department at info@copex.org.uk

The Course

This ECO module encompasses the principles and practices necessary to execute, control and manage operations and participate in design decisions. ECO provides feedback on how well plans are being executed as well as providing information for customers and suppliers about the status of services and products in process.

The importance and emphasis of these approaches are relative to the operation’s environment, the labour environment, the physical organisation of the facility and the effectiveness of management and the employees.

By the conclusion of the course, the candidate should have a good understanding of:

  • Comparing actual output to plans and taking appropriate corrective action
  • Communicating basic ideas in a group setting and instruct others in simple tasks
  • Creating basic operational solutions in the face of competing resources
  • Recognising distribution alternatives and their managerial impacts
  • Explaining the release of work and reporting performance through data collection
  • Understanding the execution of quality initiatives and continuous improvement plans
  • Evaluating trade-offs and participate in design decisions

The Goals

The goal of the CPIM program is to educate individuals on the concepts, tools, terminology, and integration of topics across operation functions. The CPIM program is designed to test candidate’s in-depth knowledge of a variety of subjects specific to production and inventory management. APICS works hard to ensure that CPIM exams are reliable and that the highest professional standards are used to develop and administer the program. Continuing its commitment to excellence, APICS has updated its former CPIM program to meet industry needs and better manage the rapid expansion of information, techniques and technology.

Business process modules: Master Planning of Resources, Detailed Scheduling and Planning, and Execution and Control of Operations – Available methods and techniques to drive processes and the application of these techniques.

Capstone module: Strategic Management of Resources – Choosing the appropriate methods and techniques for specific needs and fostering an appreciation for the integrated nature of operations.

Module 1 - Basics of Supply Chain Management (BSCM)

Basics of Supply Chain Management cover basic concepts in managing the complete flow of materials in a supply chain. In the basics you get a complete overview of materials flow, from internal and external suppliers, to and from your organization.

Module 2 - Master Planning of Resources (MPR)

Candidates explore processes used to develop sales and operations plans, and identify and assess internal and external demand and forecasting requirements. The course focuses on the importance of producing achievable master schedules that are consistent with business policies, objectives, and resource constraints.

Module 3 - Detailed Scheduling and Planning (DSP)  
 
Candidates focus on the various techniques for materials and capacity scheduling. The course includes detailed descriptions of materials requirements planning (MRP), capacity requirements planning (CRP), inventory management practices, and procurement and supplier planning.

Module 4 - Execution and Control of Operations (ECO)

Candidates focus on the areas of prioritizing and sequencing work, executing work plans and implementing controls, reporting activity results, and providing evaluating feedback on performance. The course explains techniques for scheduling and controlling production processes, the execution of quality initiatives and continuous improvement plans, and the control and handling of inventories.

Module 5 - Strategic Management of Resources (SMR)

Strategic Management of Resources explores the relationship of existing and emerging processes and technologies to manufacturing strategy and supply chain-related functions. The course addresses three main topics:

  • Aligning resources with the strategic plan
  • Configuring and integrating operating processes to support the strategic plan
  • Implementing change. 

The Benefits

APICS CPIM designees benefit their company by helping to streamline operations by using their knowledge and skills that they receive in the CPIM program to reduce inventory levels, improve planning and scheduling of forecasts and orders, and better align the supply chain.

With the APICS CPIM, your employees will have:

  • the proven knowledge and organizational skills to strategically streamline operations.
  • the tools to effectively manage global supply chain activities where suppliers, plants, distributors and customers are located around the world.
  • the ability to interact with existing resources and your ERP system to increase the efficiency of the workplace environment.
  • the skills to create consistency and foster collaboration through best practices, common terminology, and corporate-wide communication.

For the employee, the benefits are:

  • accelerated career development and better employment opportunities.
  • to boost your career potential by separating yourself from your co-workers by being certified.
  • earning an APICS CPIM demonstrates your skills and knowledge to employers and colleagues.
  • the potential for higher salaries, job security, job satisfaction and higher status within their organisations.
  • recognition within the Industry.
  • The APICS CPIM gives customers, peers, and employers’ confidence in your employees abilities, which can lead to new business, promotion, career opportunities, and increased salary.

The Results

As a result of an employee obtaining his CPIM designation from APICS, they would be well placed to contribute considerably to the planning and controlling of materials and capacities within their organisations as well as the execution activities on the factory floor.

People with this designation are well suited for senior roles within the organisation such as Master Production Scheduler, Planners, Buyers, Materials Managers and Operations Managers.
