OPER 7700 Operations Management (Fall/Spring/Summer: 3 )
Operations, like accounting, finance and marketing, is one of the primary functions of every organization. Operations managers transform human, physical and technical resources into goods and services. Hence, it is vital that every organization manage this resource conversion effectively and efficiently. How effectively this is accomplished depends upon the linkages between operating decisions and top management (strategic) decisions. The focus of the course is decision-making at the operating level of the firm, converting broad policy directives into specific actions within the organization. Strong emphasis will be placed on the development and use of quantitative models to assist in decision making.
