Overview of APICS Certified Supply Chain Professioal (CSCP)

From the manufacturing to the service industry, regardless of whether a company is serving business or consumer markets or is for profit or not-for-profit, the increasing role of supply chain management is happening in all organizations. Customers already expect good quality at low prices, and speed of delivery is becoming more important. As a result, effective supply chain management has become essential to successfully compete in today’s global marketplace.


APICS brings you the first comprehensive educational program designed for operations and supply chain management professionals, the APICS Certified Supply Chain Professional (CSCP). The APICS CSCP program takes a broad view of the field, extending beyond internal operations to encompass all the steps throughout the supply chain—from the supplier, through the company, to the end consumer—and how to effectively manage these activities to maximize a company’s value chain.


The APICS CSCP program helps you demonstrate your knowledge and organizational skills for developing more streamlined operations. Since its launch in 2006, more than 12,000 professionals in 77 countries have earned the APICS CSCP designation.
