OPIM-594 Operations Management
Additional content will be added soon to reflect the changes to the new curriculum.
This course is designed to introduce you to concepts, tools and techniques for managing this function. Moreover, since this is a new field for many of you, we also want to give you a new perspective to look at organizations. If we are successful, many of you after this course will change the way you look at a restaurant, a hospital, a bank, a factory, a repair shop, a daily newspaper, an airline, a warehouse, a government agency, an airport, or even a consulting company! You’ll observe more closely and critically how they are producing their product (goods or services), and will notice that some of their production processes are smart and some not-so-smart (sometimes irritatingly inefficient). We believe this course will give you a better appreciation of the real drivers behind success or failure of many of these organizations. To use our usual business school jargons, you’ll learn about the strategic importance of the firm’s supply chain and production systems.
