Scope:  Strategic management of resources possesses a significant and increasing potential—to dramatically increase any company’s competitive position by reshaping not only its production or service processes but its management concepts as well.  Exploiting these opportunities involves virtually everyone in the organization and usually requires widespread cultural change. 

SMR is the “capstone” module for the five courses contained within the Certified in Production & Resource Management (CPIM) program.

Who Should Attend?  Those seeking to advance into management roles should take this course.  Anyone active in the daily monitoring or implementation tasks of Production Planning, Purchasing, Logistics, or Operations control will bring home strategic choices for enterprise organization, cross-functional communication linkages, and training development initiatives for long-term Customer Service improvements.  We usually recommend that the previous modules of CPIM should be taken before SMR.  However, this course is also an excellent stand-alone module for existing MBAs or Managers to consider as a means of fine-tuning or honing their skills; or for existing CPIMs to obtain 24 Certification Maintenance points.

Logistics:  This 21-hour course is being offered on Tuesday evenings, 4-7PMStudents must bring highlighters and a calculator with square root function to every session. Cost for APICS Maine and MAME members is $550 per student ($870 Non-member), or bundle a 1-year membership with the course for $770. 

Tuition includes the SMR Participant Guide and Instructor Developed Course enhancements


Your instructor for this course is Maryanne Ross, CFPIM, CIRM, CSCP, CLTD, an APICS recognized Master Instructor.  For more information, please contact Maryanne Ross at
