APICS Digital Library

Welcome to the APICS Digital Library! The Digital Library is a valuable resource which enables APICS affiliates and sponsors to explore and access a comprehensive database of supply chain-related materials produced by APICS staff, affiliates, and members.  


What can I find in the library?

The library contains a variety of digital materials spanning a breadth of topics in the supply chain, logistics, and operations management fields -- and it's growing. 


The APICS digital library collection is comprised of archived presentations, research papers, white papers, case studies, and webinar recordings by members of the APICS community. Topics include:

  • end-to-end supply chain management
  • logistics
  • operations management
  • PLCOR, DCOR, CCOR, and M4SC benchmarks
  • S&OP
  • SCOR model and benchmarks
  • transportation

Initially, the digital library will cover materials from 2013-2016, including the SCOR model and related benchmark tools, and will regularly be updated with additional material from APICS, APICS SCC, and an expanded selection of past publications. 

How do I access the library?
