CIOP - Certified Inventory Optimization Professional certification takes the learning of Supply Chain to the next level by having questions which are based on use cases. Instead of expecting students to byheart theoretical concepts, CIOP poses questions by putting the student in a particular role like buyer, production coordinator, planner etc. This way the learning is more practical than abstract. CIOP is based on IMBoK which is the Inventory Management Body of Knowledge. This IMBoK is a culmination of years of rich supply chain experience from various industry experts. For the above reasons, I recommend CIOP certification for Supply Chain professionals.

Supply Chain Managers today face lot of challenges and at the same time this is the space that has lot of potential to get disrupted by emerging technologies. Our team of IT software engineers and business analysts needs to be at the forefront when it comes to embracing this opportunity and make a lasting impact on the business. This requires lot of common understanding about sales and operations planning, demand management, capacity planning, production planning, inventory management, material requirements planning, production scheduling etc. We along with our IT learning and development team zeroed in on Fhyzics. From the very beginning, we were thoroughly impressed by the thoroughness of our Instructor Mr. Venkadesh. We started before the lockdown in physical classroom setting and then moved to online mode. All through the training, Mr. Venkadesh shared his rich experience and brought real life to the concepts being taught. He was extremely flexible in accommodating to our schedules and infinitely patient in answering our queries. He also encouraged good dialogue which went a long way in reinforcing the learning. The fact that he did not hesitate to do certain extra sessions on core topics when requested, has highly impressed us and this has ensured that all of our team members learnt the subject really well. Overall, we were highly satisfied with the professionalism and timely delivery of this training. Thank you Mr. Venkadesh and all the best to Fhyzics team to mentor and mold many more personnel associated with Supply chain Management in any capacity.

CIOP is one of the best certificates in the industry that helps you master inventory and supply chain management. The extent of the 30 modules helps you to master end-to-end supply chain management with special focus on inventory. I really liked the way the faculties had walked us through various modules with practical examples and best practices. CIOP is a good mix of theory, problems, and best practices. I recommend CIOP to anyone, either like to make a career in SCM or accelerate in the career with sound understanding of the principles and practices.

I had an opportunity to connect with Venkadesh and get supply chain training. I am a seasoned IT architect with data solution integration expertise globally and currently in to digital supply chain solutions. It was the ask of the hour for supply chain domain expertise. My connect with Venkadesh filled this gap that I had for me in my recent career. Venkadesh's knowledge in supply chain is phenomenal and highly recommend him for implementing or mentoring supply chain at any organization as his supply chain knowledge is international and not specific to India which adds to his success. I wish Venkadesh all the success in his career and spread his knowledge accordingly. Good luck in whatever you do.

I took up my Supply Chain training at Fhyzics Business Consultants. I had classes during the first week of every month. The concepts were explained to me clearly with a demonstration of real-life examples. These examples were also explained in the form of graphs, illustrations etc. I was also able to interact with the faculties during the sessions to clear my doubts. The PPT provided for each topic was very brief in its explanation of the core concepts. I was also given adequate amount of guidance on how to use the online class and quiz questions given to me.
