Overview “Operations” produces the products or manages the services that an organization provides its customers. Careful management of this area and its resources is required if the organization is to prosper, or indeed, survive. In contrast, supply chains encompass all activities associated with the flow of goods from the raw materials stage through to the end user, as well as the associated information flows. Supply chains link the operations of many organizations together. Course Objectives: Comprehension of business issues which managers face in setting up, planning, and controlling operations so you can effectively interact and solve problems with operations professionals in a business context (whether you work in supply chain or a related business function).

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
