APICS Partners with OPS Rules to Enhance Operations Analytics Body of Knowledge

OPS Rules Joins APICS as a Premier Corporate Sponsor

CHICAGO, January 26, 2016 – APICS, the premier professional association for supply chain management, announced today that OPS Rules, the leading operations and supply chain analytics firm, has signed on as a premier corporate sponsor.

OPS Rules is known for its cutting-edge work in areas ranging from network design and multi-echelon inventory optimization to advanced analytics such as segmentation and price optimization. The organization has experience helping companies achieve 10 to 30 percent improvements in metrics such as revenue and profit. As part of the collaboration, OPS Rules will contribute content for APICS research on topics such as the Internet of Things, manufacturing flexibility, and supply chain risk and price optimization.

“OPS Rules is a well-known leader in operations analytics with unique expertise that helps companies identify and capture hidden opportunities in their supply chains and operating models,” said APICS Executive Vice President, Peter Bolstorff, CSCP, SCOR-P. “We are pleased to have OPS Rules as part of the APICS community.”

Additionally, OPS Rules will join the APICS Corporate Advisory Board to help raise awareness of the value analytics brings to the supply chain. The two organizations will co-author an upcoming report on operations analytics and OPS Rules will participate in the APICS Supply Chain Council’s (APICS SCC) Annual Executive Summit in February 2016.

“I believe that combining OPS Rules’ operations analytics practice with APICS’s experience and large network will contribute to a better understanding of current end-to-end supply chain practices,” said Mike Romeri, CEO and Managing Partner of OPS Rules. “We see this as a transformative collaboration for both parties.”

As an APICS premier corporate sponsor, OPS Rules will also have access to APICS SCC frameworks, such as the Supply Chain Operations Reference (SCOR) model, the supply chain management community’s most widely accepted framework for evaluating and comparing supply chain activities and performance. Since 1996, over 5,000 companies worldwide have implemented the SCOR framework.
