Description

Every organisation has to provide value to its customer in order to survive in the current business environment. The value is an outcome of numerous processes that form the operations of an organisation. It is crucial for business success to design sound operations that are well maintained and continually improved.

In this subject, students learn how to design, manage and optimise operations in manufacturing and non-manufacturing environments. Emphasis is placed on 'lean operations' which has become the best practice for both manufacturing and service organisations. Topics include: Toyota production system, just-in-time, types of waste, managing supply chain and inventory, total productive maintenance, and six sigma improvement system. Case studies from world-class organisations in manufacturing and non-manufacturing industries are provided.
