Major Overview

Operations Management is about getting things done effectively and efficiently in organizations. Demands for business process re-engineering, better quality, better customer service, time-based competition, and supply chain management demonstrate that superior management of the operations function is vital in business today. Operations managers manage the production systems in manufacturing and services. All organizations have an operations function. Operations managers might work in managing manufacturing processes or managing the delivery of a service to a customer.

Topics include process analysis and improvement, quality control, production planning, inventory systems, managing manufacturing, supply chain management, and managing the delivery of services. Operations managers need good analytical and problem solving skills and knowledge of computers.
