Description:
Prerequisites 

Operations Research

 
Objectives 

The learning outcome of this course is that the student is able to understand a set of advanced methods and models in productions / operations management to apply production planning and control tools and tech-niques for decision-making. Course develops problem-solving and decision-making skills (labs) and IT skills (scheduling software).

By the end of this course students should be able to: (1) Understand current trends in P/OM area, (2) Under-stand and apply production scheduling, (3) Analyse lead-time, work-in progress, process variability, (4) Un-derstand push/pull boundary and related material control methods.

 
Content 

This course will cover the following topics: integration of productions / operations management; capacity planning; production performance and assessment; production dynamics and constraints and theory of con-straints; impact of variability and managing in production systems; push vs pull production system; manu-facturing execution systems and production scheduling; production planning and control; and production platforms and concept of flexibility.
