Operations Management --- All value in society is generated by transforming one set of things into other, different things. Without such transformations, there would be no wealth creation and no rationale for business. Operations management is the design and management of those transformation processes. In this course, we will provide a framework for systematically examining and understanding operations management issues. We also will expose you to a few of the most important tools and practices that are useful in managing manufacturing and service production systems.
