APICS CPIM Part 2 (Virtual Class)

Do you want to get your CPIM certification but don’t have time to travel to a class each week?  Our virtual learning classes let you do just that.  Classes will be facilitated online live by an instructor.  

Central Iowa APICS is offering Part Two of Two of the Certified in Production and Inventory Management (CPIM) course.  The program is in-depth education for individuals in the operations management profession who wish to improve their knowledge of production and inventory management. The APICS CPIM curriculum concentrates on tools, techniques, and knowledge for production and inventory management


  1. Master Planning of Resources

This section includes principles and techniques of demand management, sales and operations

planning, master scheduling, and distribution planning. It includes forecasting, order servicing,

demand shaping, customer relationship management, and distribution network and replenishment.

Also included is the integration between the sales and operations plan, production plan, and master production schedule.


  1. Detailed Scheduling and Planning

This section includes principles and techniques of inventory management, material requirements planning, capacity requirements planning, and procurement and supplier planning. Recognizing the importance of supply chain management, this subject area also covers deployment of supply chain strategies related to scheduling, planning, and sourcing. This supports the strategies and objectives established by the company, as constrained by lead time, cost, equipment, personnel, sustainability, considerations, or other constraints. This encompasses requirements to bridge the master planning with the execution and control subject areas.


  • Execution and Control of Operations

This section encompasses the principles and techniques necessary to execute, control, and manage operations, and participate in design decisions. This subject area provides feedback about how good 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 labor environment, the physical organization of the facility, and the effectiveness of management and employees.


  1. Strategic Management of Resources

This section includes higher-level thinking on strategic planning and implementation of operations. This requires an understanding of how market requirements and strategic position of the organization drive the resources and processes of an organization. This includes how operational strategies are developed and implemented, change management and risk implications.
