Students will gain a basic understanding of the collection of topics included in operation management. This includes industrial delivery of products and services.
The focus is on how to develop and operate a profitable company that delivers products and services with the most efficient time, quality, and price. Students will utilize central topics/ methods and show an understanding of the core models and methods that operation management is built on. Students will appreciate the complexity and relationship in the operation of companies and acquire knowledge in the chosen topics and methods regarding operations and development.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to utilize theories and models to analyze what happens in a company in different situations and design their own studies to assess the best course of action. This includes applying theoretical models and concepts as basis for a development of the companies' production and services.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to critically evaluate and reflect upon central assumptions within operation management.
The focus is on companies that deliver goods and services within an acceptable timeframe, level of quality and price.
Through assignments the students will work with sketches and calculations for a case, and through this achieve an integrated holistic understanding.
Example of topics are: product design, processes, planning, control, logistics, lean management, supplychain, maintenance, modeling& simulation, and methods for developing a company. It is important to be aware of how different methods may influence each other.
