The chapter provides resources, classes and accreditation for supply chain and operations professionals.  

The Spring 2019 Symposium focuses on a key issue in today’s manufacturing and supply chain environments: Manufacturing & Supply Chain Talent Transformation: People or Robots?”

“Our sponsors are key to our ability to host these events twice each year” commented Lisa Anderson,  APICS-IE Chapter Leader and President of LMA Consulting Group. “Each of the sponsors have supported the APICS Inland Empire chapter for over three years” she concluded.  The symposium attracts industry professionals from the Inland Empire and Southern California.

“The APICS Inland Empire chapter is an important resource for manufacturing executives. The symposiums provide insight and a place for professionals to connect” noted Alan Dunn, Founder of the MEI and President of GDI Consulting.

Just as important, manufacturing, distribution and supply chain professionals can discuss relevant industry issues. “It has been proven that embracing the latest supply chain solutions creates advantages and affects the bottom line. The symposiums cover the latest technology and industry advances and insights that allow professionals to reconfirm their own efforts and do advance planning. Collaborating and sharing with peers will also increase success in adopting new strategic processes. We are glad that we are part of the transformation of supply chains in the Inland Empire.” commented Nima Bakhtiary, President and CEO of Arbela Technologies.  

All supply chains are affected by transportation whether locally or globally. “APICS-IE symposiums demonstrate how all disciplines affect each other and allow for education and collaboration.  We are proud to be a part of that” noted Keith Durna, Vice-President at Reveel.
