History

In 1957, 20 production control managers formed the American Production and Inventory Control Society.[4] The organization later became an international association known as APICS.

APICS merged with the Supply-Chain Council in 2014 and with American Society of Transportation and Logistics (AST&L) in 2015. APICS offers several professional designations.

CPIM

The "APICS Certified in Production and Inventory Management" or "APICS CPIM" designation is a professional certification offered by APICS. The program was founded in 1973. Since its inception, more than 100,000 people have earned the APICS CPIM designation. APICS CPIM designees learn terminology, concepts, and strategies related to demand management, procurement and supplier planning, material requirements planning, capacity requirements planning, sales and operations planning, master scheduling, performance measurements, supplier relationships, quality control, and continuous improvement.
