About Us

APICS is the leading professional organization for advancing supply chain and operations management performance, including production, inventory, supply chain, materials management, purchasing, and logistics. Our name and logo represent the reputation we’ve built since we were founded in 1957 (as the American Production and Inventory Control Society).

APICS is recognized as the premier provider of research, education and certification programs focused on supply chain and operations management. We set the industry standard.

Our programs are highly respected because we are an independent, global volunteer organization that builds, validates, updates and maintains the body of knowledge for our profession.
