The Educational Society for Resource Management (founded as the American Production and Inventory Control Society - APICS) is an international educational and certification organization. As such, their web site provides information and services in production, inventory management and related areas to enable members, enterprises, and individuals to add value to their business performance. Resources available at the site include industry best practices, current industry news and an extensive list of links to allied businesses within the inventory and supply chain management industry. The monthly online magazine features an array of strategic articles across inventory, materials, production, and supply chain management, among many other topics. Many of these articles are, however, restricted to APICS members.
