Introduced in 2006, the CSCP material examines the supply chain, end-to-end. Approved candidates (those already holding the CPIM designation being the ideal entry route) explore the various issues associated with modern supply chains.

Hilf Supply Chain Solutions is offering this half day briefing session at your UK facility to overview CSCP for your team. The introductory session, which would be delivered by a CSCP certified instructor, would prove an ideal ‘kick off’ for those members of your team considering embarking upon a self-study approach. Contact Us to arrange a session. Full in-house delivery to your team is also available (see below).

“The APICS CSCP brings your company’s entire value chain into perspective.

From manufacturing to service, in business and consumer markets, the increasingly important role of effective supply chain management affects all organizations. Customer expectations are high - with the APICS CSCP, you can ensure that your company not only meets, but exceeds them.” (source: APICS)

The official APICS / Holmes Corporation International CSCP brochure can be emailed as a pdf on request.

“The APICS CPIM certification provides a common platform for individuals to evaluate their knowledge of production and inventory management. APICS CPIM focuses primarily on manufacturing and provides an in-depth view of materials management, master scheduling, production planning, forecasting, and quality improvement within the confines of the operation. The APICS CSCP certification takes a broader view, extending the APICS CPIM knowledge outside of a company’s internal operations to encompass all of the steps throughout the supply chain - from suppliers through the company to the end consumer - and how to effectively manage the integration of these activities to maximize a company’s value chain.” (source: APICS)

In house delivery

The recommended facilitation period is 39 hours - either as 13 off 3 hour sessions, or as five full days (preceded by an introduction). It is emphasised that even with the tutor led sessions, a large amount of home study is necessary by the candidates. Note the examination entry fee and the documentation are both expensive, we will guide our clients through the various options available. Note, these classes are predominantly aimed at our existing clients who we have led through the CPIM programme.
