1.- Introduction and Objectives
The objective of this course is to introduce students to concepts and techniques related to the design, planning, control, and improvement of manufacturing and service operations. The course provides a theoretical and empirical overview of the economics of operations management with a holistic view of operations where we stress the coordination of product development, process management, and supply chain management.
As the course progresses, we will investigate various aspects of each of these three tiers of operations in detail. We will cover topics in the areas of process analysis, production scheduling, quality improvement and supply chain management.
2.- Methods of teaching and course activities
To pursue the course objective most effectively, students will have to:
