About the Course

This course focuses on how a company should execute schedules and control operations. It discusses the significant effect on customer satisfaction that proper execution and control have.

Course Description

This course provides information on how to effectively execute and control key supply and demand processes.

Planning without effective and efficient execution is only wishful thinking. Implementing any operations or production plan requires the ability to handle a great amount of details and the patience to deal successfully with several variables in a highly dynamic environment under constant deadline pressure.

This course will cover the three major elements of execution and control, including capturing and committing to meet all demand, prioritizing and sequencing work through all project or operation phases, and controlling operations to meet quality, quantity, and delivery needs.

Note: Project control defines the execution and control activities for projects and concepts related to project control that may be tested on the Basics of Supply Chain Management certification exam are not covered in this course. Please refer to the Project Implementation Phase and Project Close-out Phase topics in the CPIM Project Management course (APX887), which provides details that exceed the requirements for the Basics of Supply Chain Management exam.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain customer order processing and promising activities.
