The Chief Production Officer (CPO) training program is one of the core training programs offered by PACE.  This program aims to build and develop a professional production and plant management force for the business community in Vietnam.

Not long ago, one of the leading multi-national corporations (MNCs) in Europe visited Vietnam to outsource some of its production and manufacturing stages to local companies.  They knew that companies in Vietnam had similar production lines and hoped that the cost of goods (COGs) sold in Vietnam would be lower than those in Europe.  However, after extensive discussions, it was discovered that the COGs with the same production line in Vietnam was nearly half more than the COGs in Europe and the United States.  Thus, the question arose of why there were two different COGs even though the production line created the same material in Vietnam, and with even cheaper labor cost.  The answer lies in the company’s ability to manage productions and its ability to integrate and utilize technology effectively. 

Nowadays, whether it is a small, medium or large factory, production management uses technology to help production managers and directors save time in learning and managing all activities in the factory.  In addition, technology also saves costs in the production line, which helps the company achieve optimal productivity with competitive COGs.  Understanding the production management landscape, PACE’s CPO program provides knowledge on advanced and effective production management technology from leading MNCs to increase the productivity of businesses.  The program consists of the following content: (1) On Becoming a Professional Marketing; (2) Management System of Manufactory / Plant; (3) Manufacturing Planning and Strategy; (4) Production Management and Quality Control System; (5) Modern Production Management Models; (6) Managing and Controlling Manufacturing Costs; (7) Logistics Management Technology; (8) Labor Safety and Environment Protection; and (9) Managing People and Developing Team in Manufacturing.

Trainers of the program include seasoned experts in production and manufacturing management who have in-depth knowledge of the latest trends in production management in Vietnam and abroad.  Through the training program, these dedicated trainers aspire to bring Vietnamese production to a higher level, and contribute to the effective and efficient production and manufacturing for businesses in Vietnam.
