APICS CPIM Part 1 Exam Guide

The APICS CPIM Part 1 certification (previously Basics of Supply Chain Management or BSCM) is an entry-level module and covers what you would expect – the basics. You’ll learn the concepts that govern the world of supply and demand, how the flow of goods and materials affects final output and how supply chain management works in different industries, including retail, distribution, manufacturing and service industries.

The topics of the CPIM Part 1 exam include:

A. Introduction to Supply Chain Management
B. Manufacturing Design, Planning, and Control
C. Quality and Continuous Improvement
D. Lean
E. Demand Management
F. Master Planning
G. Material Requirements Planning
H. Capacity Management
I. Purchasing
J. Aggregate Inventory Management
K. Item Inventory Management
L. Execution and Control
M. Physical Distribution

The exam consists of 150 different questions, all of which are multiple-choice. However, 20 of these questions are unscored. After you have mastered CPIM Part 1, you will move on to the CPIM Part 2 (now composed of the four modules previously known as MPR, DSP, ECO, and SMR).
