Module Overview
 

Operations and process management concerns the management of the direct resources and value-added activities that transform inputs (e.g., material, labour, capital, energy and skills) into outputs (goods and services).

Operations managers make decisions, both strategic and tactical, in a variety of contexts:

  • Capacity
  • Facilities
  • Technology
  • Sourcing
  • The workforce
  • Quality
  • Planning and control
  • The organization

The aim of this module is to introduce you to the fundamental concepts of operations management from a general management perspective. Tactical and strategic operations will be addressed. Operations design and management will be examined from the perspective of achieving the organization’s goals. As a supply chain professional, you should understand the scope and complexity of problems faced by operations managers.

Upon completion of this module candidates should be able to:

  • Analyze, discuss and present case reports.
  • Understand the nature of operations management in making tactical and strategic decisions for the organization.

  • Explain the relationships between process flow, capacity, bottlenecks, variability, lead time and inventory.
  • Apply appropriate tools to solve product and service quality problems and process improvement problems.
  • Explain the basic elements of a lean production system (e.g., the Toyota Production System), value-added activity and elimination of waste in the system.
