COURSE DESCRIPTION AND PREREQUISITES (FROM CATALOG): This course provides an overview of methods and tools for planning and controlling the production and distribution of goods and services. Topics include forecasting, production planning, inventory management, and other functions necessary to properly allocate, evaluate, and manage resources in production processes. Managers in both manufacturing and service organizations need to understand these topics in order to increase firm value by reducing costs and required assets while maintaining or increasing output, quality, and customer service. Prerequisite: STA 2023. COURSE MATERIALS: TEXT: MAN3504: Operations Management (paperback), Pearson Custom Business Resources, 2010, ISBN: 10-0558893937, especially designed for this course. Material is excerpted from Operations Management: Processes and Supply Chains (9th edition, 2010) by Lee Krajewski, Larry Ritzman, and Manoj Malhotra (i.e., the material is taken from the “full” textbook written by Krajewski, Ritzman, and Malhotra). Please note that I consider the textbook a secondary source of information (or reference) for the course, with the primary source(s) being the in-class lecture and discussion, plus accompanying documents (e.g., PowerPoint slides) found in the Blackboard account for the course. I will make a reading assignment from the textbook preceding each module of the course, and I will regularly assign practice homework problems from the textbook. However, given the means by which I use the textbook in this course, you may find it quite reasonable to share a textbook with one or more of your classmates. ADDITIONAL READING MATERIAL: I am currently in the process of developing my own textbook for this course, and I have placed an excerpt from one of the chapter drafts in the Course Documents section of the Blackboard Account for this course under “Additional Reading Material” (and I may place other excerpts there during the term). As you might expect, you'll find that this excerpt is rather closely aligned with the lectures and PowerPoint slides used in class. The excerpt covers material discussed in class that is not covered in detail or at length in the course text, and thus you should find it useful as supporting reading material. Also, under “Journal Article of Interest” in
