Inventory Management and Production Planning
This course examines concepts related to inventory management and production planning. In inventory management, we take an in-depth look at topics such as forecasting, lot sizing, safety stock determination and inventory control systems. In production planning, and scheduling, the topics are: sales and operations planning, material requirement planning, capacity planning, scheduling, repetitive manufacturing, just in time, and theory of constraints. SAP enterprise resource planning system ECC 6.0 is used extensively in the course to highlight concepts and to demonstrate integrated planning approaches in practical settings. Students do hands-on drills and assignments using SAP ECC 6.0. This course can be used towards SAP Certification in Business Integration.
