Forum to streamline supply chains

The apicsAU Victorian Chapter convenes a monthly forum for members involved in various aspects of supply chain and related industries.
 
The forum discusses matters of common interest, with a particular focus on the practical implementation of the various business functions associated with the APICS body of knowledge and the use of Enterprise Resource Planning systems in supporting those functions.
 
A formal agenda is prepared for the conduct of each meeting with a series of subjects for future meetings agreed by forum members.
 
Initiated by Kevin Hitchman, apicsAU Victorian member and Logistics Manager at BPW Transpec Pty Ltd, the forum is presently engaged in an extensive review of supply chain performance measurements.
 
Using a review of performance measurements that appeared in a recent edition of the apicsAU Journal of Enterprise Resource Management as a framework, Forum participants have worked their way through 16 of the 36 measurements addressed in that review.
 
The forum explores each subject area in detail, developing an understanding of the requirements of different business operations in that subject area.
 
It also determines the ways in which ERP/other solutions may be used to address those requirements.
 
apicsAU members holding CPIM qualifications are welcome to join the Forum which typically meets on the last Thursday of each month at the apicsAU office in North Melbourne.
 
There is no fee for participation, but members wishing to participate, should register their interest beforehand.
