NQF Level 4 Short Courses
83989 E02 – Material Requirements Planning (MRP)
In this course we look at why having the right material at the right time to meet the production plan is a critical factor in keeping the supply chain running efficiently. To get the material requirements right, one needs to understand how demand is generated.
83989 E03 – Capacity Requirements Planning (CRP)
Capacity decisions affect the production lead time, customer responsiveness, operating cost and the company’s ability to compete. The lowest level of the planning hierarchy is the execution and control of production. This includes scheduling for daily jobs for manufacturing, daily management and optimising of resources.
83989 E04 – Total Quality Management (TQM)
There is much more to quality than just producing product without any defects. Achieving and managing consistently high levels of quality means continually pursuing excellence: ensuring that whatever your organisation does, it is done with quality in mind.
83989 E05 – Just in Time (JIT) and Lean Manufacturing Principles
Lean and JIT supply chain management is a philosophy of continuous improvement and elimination of waste. Lean principles can be applied to both manufacturing and service industries to improve operational performance. Inventory planning is an important element in continuous improvement.
SC4-JLM02 – Demand & Supply Planning
In this course we look at understanding and managing demand is the foundation of good planning, which depends on effective MRP, while supply deals with purchasing and procurement. An important element of purchasing is the effective negotiation of contracts.
83988 E02 – Short Term Planning
Short term planning deals with the execution and control of production. MPS and MRP must be implemented while taking into account conditions on the shop floor, while capacity decisions must account for production lead time, customer responsiveness, and costs. This can be improved with the use of technology.
SC4-JLM03 – Quality Management
To achieve quality, it is helpful to understand the principles and dimensions of quality. Quality includes cost management, quality at source, and the inspection of products. Achieving and managing consistently high levels of quality means continually pursuing excellence!
