Traditional Purchasing & Customer Satisfaction courses are thorough within the boundaries of the function.

The understanding of MRP mechanics is another huge area, vital to the majority of organisations, where formal tuition has been uncommon since the eighties when MRP Classification from Oliver Wight type companies was particularly in vogue. The widespread industrial take-up of ERP systems has resulted in a necessity to ensure such knowledge is ingrained in buyers and planners alike due to the fact that such systems use traditional MRP logic. Ensuring understanding of such techniques (in addition to the IT user training necessary) increases the likelihood of a trouble free implementation massively.
