APICS Issues Corporate Awards of Excellence

Published: Monday, October 25, 2004 - 22:00

The Educational Society for Resource Management (APICS, from its former name, the American Production and Inventory Control Society) recently presented corporate awards of excellence to several companies that excel in innovation, cooperation and workplace education. The award winners are Northrop Grumman Integrated Systems Sector, Lucent Technologies, Delta Air Lines, SAP America and SmartSignal Corp.

Northrop Grumman Integrated Systems Sector, of Melbourne, Florida, was awarded the organization’s education award for its innovative teleconferencing and Internet meetings programs, which allow cross-state employee seminars.

Lucent Technologies, of Murray Hill, New Jersey, was the recipient of the APICS innovation award, for the development of a profit margin forecasting tool that has simplified predicting gross margins for making portfolio choices.

Delta Air Lines, SAP America and SmartSignal were collectively given technology partnership awards for an innovative inventory management plan that also provided better engine monitoring, reduced maintenance costs and improved aircraft availability.
