This course explains the role that purchasing plays in a traditional 'for profit' manufacturing environment. It will provide participants with insight into what purchasing can bring to the process and will explain what is expected of a purchasing organization involved in manufacturing. The primary objective is to introduce students to common manufacturing terms, gain an understanding of manufacturing systems and procedures, introduce students to the impact purchasing has on R&D and new product development, where purchasing lies in the decision-making process, and the financial impact purchasing has on the bottom line. This is an elective class for the Purchasing and Supply Management Certificate Program and is endorsed by NAPM UTAH.
