DESC 475 Production and Operations Management (4)

This course provides an evolving survey of effective operations management concepts and techniques in manufacturing and service industries. Designed to position operations in a strategic perspective, concepts include quality management, materials management, process and product selection, facility and job design, and planning. Analytical techniques used to evaluate opportunities based on cost, quality, time, and flexibility include forecasting, capacity analysis, inventory control, statistical process control, aggregate planning, scheduling, and project management. This course focuses on the application of these concepts rather than the theoretical proofs of specific techniques. Prerequisite(s): DESC 471 Statistical Methods for Business (4) .
