Course Objectives: Operations management deals with the design of products and processes, the acquisition of resources, the conversion of inputs to outputs, and the distribution of goods and services. It is central to a firm's ability to compete effectively. As global competition in both goods and services increases, the management of operations is becoming more and more important. This course provides a broad overview of the managerial issues associated with production and delivery of goods and services. It includes the use of quantitative modeling using computers as a central methodology as well as several case studies in operations. At the end of this course, you will appreciate the challenges of providing world‐class products and services, and you should be able to use analytical tools and conceptual frameworks to guide your thinking about operations. In particular, you will have a better understanding of: How to identify and improve key business processes. How to define clear performance objectives. How to use data and analytical tools to improve process effectiveness considering costs, information, capacities, outputs, inventories, delays/waiting lines, quality, and supply chains. How to integrate the operations function with other business functions such as marketing, finance, distribution, and engineering. How to develop quantitative models for a wide class of business decision problems that include but are not limited to production, distribution, inventory, and supply chain management decisions.
