Production & Operations Management Top Business HR

The course includes a certain amount of quantitative, or perhaps because the course strikes them as “how to run a factory.” Others seem to have very little idea about what operations management is. Most of the firms are having a difficult time competing with foreign firms in both the domestic and international markets. Many of them have grown up using products produced by foreign firms on an everyday basis and they have developed a great deal of respect for the quality of their products. Participants will relate to the fact that companies must be productive in order to be competitive and that to be competitive they must have some well thought out approach, plan or strategy on how to achieve this position. In other words, Participants will be able to understand why it is important to learn what productivity really is, how we measure it, what factors affect it, and how firms can improve their productiveness. Participants will become aware that business firms compete with each other in a variety of ways and will study the key competitive factors which are of primary concern in today’s global business environment. Finally, the Participants focus on operations strategy with special attention being given to some of the newer strategies based on quality, time, and lean production systems.
