Operations Management is the design and management of the processes that transform inputs into finished goods or services. This course provides a foundation for understanding the operations of a firm. The course provides students with the basic skills necessary to critically analyze a firm's operating performance and practices. It focuses on how the "physics" of material, work and information flows, and the design and management of a firm's processes interact to determine a firm's cost structure and its ability to compete effectively in terms of noncost measures such as quality, variety, and speed. Usually, the following topics are covered in this course: Process analysis and Little's Law, Service Operations Management, Quality Management and Six Sigma, Introduction to Optimization and Simulation, Demand Forecasting, Deterministic and Stochastic Inventory Management, and Supply Chain Management.

When Offered Fall, spring.
