This class was tough.
Although I have a neutral feeling about this class, I would recommend this class because its challenging and the professor pushes. It is very math intensive, can't tell at first from the name. If you are scared of math, this class won't be so friendly.
Is that you get to get first hand experience of the class through a "serious game" format. You play this game where you are a CEO of a company and you control the purchasing, operations and marketing departments. You apply concepts of the class to manage your purchasing to match your demand forecast provided by marketing and sales department. You also face real life issues where suppliers are late.

Advice for students:
My advice will be to read all the handouts and study ahead of every class. This could be difficult to do. When you have access to the serious game, play it as much as possible to understand how to apply the concepts of the class. This is a big part of your term project.
