Section Information for Spring 2023

This School of Business core course provides an examination of the principal functions of operations managers in various settings, with strong emphasis on service operations, in regard to how they operate and function. Analytic models are used to describe key planning and control activities. Operations management (OM) is responsible for the production of goods and services in an organization. It not only has a significant impact on other areas such as marketing, finance, and accounting within an organization, but more importantly, also impacts the external customers of the organization. It is therefore no surprise that the performance of an organization is often largely determined by the performance of its operations area. To gain competitive advantage, operations managers pursue effectiveness and efficiency in value-adding processes at both not-for-profit and for-profit organizations. This course exposes students to a wide range of OM subjects including operations strategy, process selection, lean management, project management, quality management, inventory control, and supply chain management. Students develop both qualitative and quantitative OM skills through course lectures, class discussions, homework exercises, and in-class demonstrations.
