Description This course provides an overview of the functions, problems, solution techniques and decision making processes within the manufacturing and service environment. Topics include production planning, JIT, TQM and materials management. 

Topical description:The contemporary view of business and other organizations is that of a continuous supply chain, which starts with the extraction of raw materials from the environment through production, consumption, recycling/reuse and the return of waste materials to the environment. At the core of such a supply chain are the processes that transform resources to finished products/services, i.e. production and those processes that enable smooth transfer of products across the supply chain up to the customer, i.e. logistics. The management of the operations, i.e. production and logistics, to match supply and demand falls under the purview operations and supply chain management. Developing an understanding of basic processes that enable and organization to match supply of products with demand for products, i.e. operations and supply chain management, is the objective of this course. When we finish the course, you should not only understand how the operations and supply chain management processes work, but also have some idea of the recent issues and development in supply chain management in practice.
