Today APICS and the Cameron School of Business at the University of North Carolina-Wilmington released the “2013 APICS Supply Chain Council Operations Management Employment Outlook” survey. The survey includes an industry forecast in employment and salary, and a year-to-year evaluation from 2009 through 2013.
APICS Supply Chain Council is releasing the results of a survey that captures the ubiquity of chronic disruption—a newly defined and pervasive phenomenon. Chronic disruption, a persistent disruption that degrades, but does not inhibit, supply chain function and that does not respond to traditional remedies, is an issue that supply chain and operations management professionals need to understand and design supply chains to mitigate against.
APICS Supply Chain Council (APICS SCC) is proud to name Sun Yat Sen University (from China) the overall winner of the APICS Fresh Connection Global Student Contest. A total of 12 student-led teams from around the world were selected to attend APICS 2014 and participate in the annual scholarship case competition.
