This is one kind of training, many of us were waiting. The basics were always partially understood for experienced people in other domains. Initial lessons were quite low and detailed for right reasons. Later parts were relatively quick and to the point. The new addition on various Planning fundamentals and Inventory management is awesome and effective.

Very good course for any beginner trying to understand basics of Manufacturing. Any practical scenario on one ERP will be great.

Excellent illustrations used to understand the concept of Manufacturing Fundamentals, the explanation by the trainer is slow and steady to make us understand the concepts , even for a novice

MrClean23 March 2021

There are not many courses on fundamentals. Must add more such courses on other topics like Procurement, Warehousing, Inventory, planning etc

Very good course for beginners. The lessons are slow and may need speedingup of video for non-beginners. Subtitles are helpful but captions of Routing lesson may need corrections here and there.

Venkat24 November 2020

Excellent Coverage...beautifully delivered...for the newbies to manufacturing, this course surely demystifies a lot of confusions, misconceptions, and misunderstandings.  I am a ERP Finance Consultant and looking at learning the other areas well to understand the linkages among many departments and this course helped me to form a good plan for learning. For students of Mechanical Engineering, Production Technology etc.,  this course serves as a solid foundation and acts as a compass to navigate the detailed course very well.  For ERP Technical Consultants, this course helps in their journey to travel towards knowing the functionality of the products easily.
