PURPOSE AND RATIONALE OF THE QUALIFICATION 
Purpose:

Supply Chain Management for food manufacturing and/or sensitive consumer products is a critical scarce skill. A person acquiring this qualification will be able to manage an element of the Fast Moving Consumer Supply Chain. The focus of this qualification is to enable learners to develop their understanding and enhance their skills within a specialized area of the supply chain of a Food, Beverage or sensitive consumer product organisation.

This qualification will be of benefit to general managers as well as managers of purchasing, distribution, inventory management and production, with a focus on sensitive consumer products but with a particular reference to food and beverage manufacturing in the fast moving consumer goods sector.

The skills, knowledge and understanding contained in this qualification are essential for the creation of a talent pool of management that has experience in each part of the supply chain for Food Manufacturing and/or Sensitive Consumer Products.

Rationale:

  • INTERNATIONAL COMPARABILITY 
    This National Diploma in Procurement, Manufacturing and Distribution Management, Level 6 is primarily about managing a functional unit with a specialized area in a value or supply chain of a manufacturing entity. The qualification addresses a broad range of competencies including monitoring and measuring the performance of people, leading and managing a team, and enhancing the development of teams and team members. Hence, the focus of this qualification is on showing leadership in the management of people across the technical and operational element of a manufacturing entity.
