Fundamentals of Manufacturing for an ERP like SAP


The knowledge gained from the course forms the prerequisites for many career paths such as ERP career, Industrial Engineering, Production Management and other relevant disciplines
Experience in Manufacturing Industry in any functions such as Accounting, Sales, Production, Costing, Design, and Planning etc.


Fundamentals of Manufacturing for an ERP is a Course released on 26th November 2020, aimed at freshers aspiring to learn and Fundamentals of Manufacturing Functions.

In all your dealings you might be wondering on some of the terms and practices that you might be hearing in the conversations with your Manufacturing counterparts.You as a Store keeper deal with issuing materials and may realize certain material are issued as a set because they are all used to make certain product. At times, you will be seeing alternative items issued in place of the items in the Material list against the work order for which you are issuing the material. At times, you see some material are not immediately requested even if they are in the Material list of Work order. This is probably because they are needed only in later steps of manufacturing. You will pick a few things about manufacturing and miss many.As a Sales person you will be wondering why an order for big quantity from customer can not be fulfilled at the given dates. Why cant this order be still taken and fulfil by engaging more people to complete on time. You will be disappointed for the delay of Cash Flow when the Planner or Plant manager firmly confirm the order of such size can be delivered only at a later date.

And basics are the foundation based on which you grow.eBodhisathva Solution made the course with above kind of professionals and starters.This course is fully focused on explaining the very fundamentals of Manufacturing, with detailed illustrations where possible.The examples used in the Course are not very usual examples that you may see from public information. Lot of effort is spent to include more realistic and close to real examples in the Organization.To make the explanation very appealing, lot of graphics and animations are applied appropriately.The aspirants of ERP career, IT consultants, Professionals in other domains of Manufacturing industry and Engineering students may take this as a starting point before going in depth to specialized topics within Manufacturing.The Course is structured as below:Introduction to ManufacturingBill of Material RoutingTypes of ManufacturingDiscrete Job ShopRepetitive ManufacturingAssemble to Order ManufacturingProject ManufacturingProcess ManufacturingJust in Time (JIT) Inventory typesInventory types according to how they are usedRelevance in multiple manufacturing environment (for each inventory type)Inventory ClassificationABC, ClassificationFast and Slow Moving How Inventory Management policies are determined for each typeOrder Review methods Quantity Based review methods (Re-Order Point, POQ, Visual reviews etc)Demand and Quantity based review methods (TPOP and MRP etc)Briefing on Planning Functions (Netting requirements, Scheduling methods and Lot sizing)The Course has supporting Off-line reading material in the form of eBooks for most of the topics covered.The Course included exercises for Practical understanding of the concepts, wherever applicable.The Course is associated Quizs for students to refresh their understanding during attending courseThis course will be Continuously refined according to the feedback received. The enhancements will be included in the course for no extra-cost for the students already enrolled as well as for new students.
