As far as having a military-centric background in logistics in the past 28 years, the Georgia Tech APICS Boot Camps were of great value in understanding the corporate standards, concepts, and common lingo shared among our professionals. Any course offering can be bland like many others, but what makes Georgia Tech unquestionably stand out is the staff and faculty that support the Boot Camps and the students who attend. The in-depth dialogue between faculty and other students from diverse logistical business backgrounds and positions make the APICS Boot Camps top-notch in value attained and received for everyone involved. I would strongly recommend these courses to anyone interested in attaining their test certification!
Being in this program has built my confidence up, actually. I’ve been doing these things, but in a different way. Now I know how to apply these skills to the civilian world. Having this additional certification in supply chain and logistics certainly adds to the marketability of my resume.
In one particular instance, our team identified an opportunity to improve the picking process. We had 35-40 pickers performing the same process in almost as many ways -- some ways effective and some not. We asked, "Why are we walking all over the warehousing picking every unit for one box, when we have a conveyor system that can bring the box to the pickers and eliminate the wasteful motion?" Through leader standard work, kaizen events, picking patterns, and other applications learned from SCL courses, our team was able to improve flat picking productivity from 50 units per hour to 130 per hour.
I actually attended this course at Georgia Tech and its the best informational course that I have attended in my whole career. This course with two others were so informative and we use them everyday in our 3PL warehousing and distribution practices. A++ in my book. Robert, Anna, and Brad were phenomenal teachers; they all really care about what they teach!
I am only halfway through the series and I am already able to apply the principals and tools I have learned back at my company. Amazing course, amazing instructors, amazing facility. Our entire executive team is going through the three course certificate program. I'm looking forward to finishing the program and being able to share my knowledge not only with those in my organization, but companies we service as well.
