This course provides an overview of various types and uses of information systems in supply chain management, system standards and requirements, inventory tracking methods and data analysis, and the process of implementing a new materials management information system (MMIS). This course is also available as part of the CMRP bundle.

AHRMM recommends that review for the Certified Materials & Resource Professional (CMRP) examination focus on references and programs that cover information included in the CMRP examination content outline. Preparation using this course does not guarantee a passing score on the CMRP certification exam. Using this course is just one of the many ways in which a candidate can prepare for the exam, and it is strongly suggested that the candidate review several resources.
