Complete CPSM Exam Study Guide 2013

This title covers the Bridging exam, the Module 1 exam,
the Module 2 exam and also the Module 3 exam.


According to the ISM, the CPSM is the credential that surpasses the demands of the international marketplace with multi-faceted skills in areas such as finance, supplier relationship management, organizational global strategy and risk compliance.

The CPSM qualification enables professionals to gain a clear understanding of their organization's supply operation and enable managers to take an active role in critical decisions. It is different from APICS's CSCP in that it is targeting supply management professionals who are forward thinking and wish to have a broad understanding of all components of the profession. It focuses primarily on strategic supply management, not on fundamental or tactical level knowledge.

Sample Text on Supply Chain Collaboration

In fact, collaboration is a MUST for your chain to run efficiently. Such effort is usually implemented by sharing information and even system accesses between the chain partners.

Supply chain management solutions focus on providing more real-time data from all links of the chain. These solutions often span an enterprise's communication with suppliers, and product design collaboration is often the critical component.

Important: With Supply Chain Visibility, through real time data transport your chain partners can figure out exactly the items that you need as soon as you are aware. Through increased visibility customer satisfaction can also be vastly improved by allowing customers to track their orders from the moment they were submitted. Effective collaboration can significantly enhance supply chain visibility.

The technical methods of collaboration among chain partners often involve the use of modern technologies like Ecommerce, Internet and Extranet. Short for electronic commerce, eCommerce is the buying and selling of goods and services on the Internet. In practice, this term and the term “e-business” are often used interchangeably. An extranet is a private network that uses the Internet protocol and the public communication network to securely share business information or operations with your external partners (such as your suppliers, vendors, partners and customers). In fact, it can be viewed as part of a company's intranet that is extended to the outside users.
A successful extranet has to be safe and secure. To implement, you need firewall server management, the issuance and use of digital certificates (or similar means of user authentication), encryption of transmitted data, and the use of virtual private network (VPN) technologies that tunnel through the public internet. Fallback mechanisms must be available, or otherwise if one of these items goes wrong the entire system would be down to a total halt.
 

Sample Text on Supply Chain Visibility, Intelligence, Event Management and Channel Management

The key to Supply Chain Visibility (SCV) is to allow you to know in an accurate and timely manner on what is exactly happening upstream and downstream. Visibility may be achieved through better collaboration and the use of advanced IT systems.

Supply Chain Intelligence (SCI) involves the use of advanced computing capabilities to extract, sense, and analyze information about a supply chain. Supply chain event management (SCEM) can be thought of as an extension of Supply Chain Management (SCM). It helps in considering all possible occurring events and factors that can turn into bottlenecks in your supply chain and provides the appropriate solutions necessary for overriding such events. Supply Chain Channel Management (SCCM) refers to the organization of ways for reaching and satisfying supply chain partners. It involves more than just distribution - it focuses on how well the different supply chain channel partners interact. A Channel Partner Scorecard may be used to assess the effectiveness of your current channel partners.
