APICS stand for?
APICS. We realized years ago that our original name no longer fit an
international association active in areas outside production and inventory
control. To address our expansion, we began using the acronym APICS. Since that
time, we’ve become known as “APICS” around the world. We are embracing this
perception and formally acknowledging the evolution of our name. APICS is no
longer an acronym. It’s become a proper noun. And it’s what we are called. It’s
a name that’s easy to say, easy to spell and serves us well. Out of respect to
our heritage, we write APICS in all capital letters. We are no longer APICS “The
Association for Operations Management.”
