Production and Operations Management



All business firms exist to serve the needs and expectations of people or organizations that they have identified as customers. Satisfying customer requirements to a high degree, while charging a competitive price, provides value for money and leads to sales revenues. Maintaining such value for money over time results in customer loyalty and repeat patronage, which is the basis for business growth, market share, and profitability. Satisfying customer needs and expectations is achieved through the provision of products (for manufacturing businesses) and services (for service businesses). Producing these products or rendering these services with effectiveness (the right products/services customers desire) and efficiency (with the most productive use of scarce resources) is the primary objective of production and operations management.

POM is at the very heart of achieving the organization’s primary mission. It must predictably transform inputs (such as materials and components, labor, supplies, machining, information, and the environment) in products/services that recipients (i.e., customers) find beneficial and for which they are therefore willing to pay. This is a complex undertaking requiring the coordinated functioning of the different but interacting and interdependent components of the production and operations process. This course discusses the basics of production and operations management.


Learning Objectives

At the end of this course, the participants would have been able to:

1. Explain what production and operations management is and what it can contribute to the better management of business and not-for-profit organizations

2. Understand and appreciate the importance of processes and the six elements that interact with one another to make them operational

3. Describe and explain the key operational concepts, principles, and theories that have been found to work and have great potential in helping production and operations managers to make sound, rational decisions that satisfy customer needs, wants, and expectations in an efficient and environmentally sustainable way.

4. Adopt a total-system view of an organization’s upstream and downstream supply chains and identify the key factors for their successful and sustainable integration and coordination

5. Explain the triple bottom line philosophy that is becoming more accepted in POM
