APICS: The Association for Operations Management has released the 13th edition of its well-known APICS Dictionary, a compendium of terminology used by operations and supply chain management professionals. First published in 1963, the dictionary fosters effective communications by establishing standard definitions.
"By using common terminology, operations and supply chain management professionals can ensure efficiency and understanding whether they're communicating with colleagues down the street or across the globe," said APICS Chief Executive Officer Abe Eshkenazi, CSCP, CPA, CAE.
The 13th edition is offered for the first time as an electronic download, which can be printed or viewed on multiple devices. APICS members receive one print copy of the dictionary as a member benefit. Non-members can purchase the dictionary in print or as a download for $50.
