Primary Instructor:

This course covers the tools used in Consulting for Operations. I will introduce the basic concepts and techniques of operations, inventory management, and some tools of supply chain management. The emphasis is on implementable methods and robust, even if not optimal approaches. The foundation of the course is a system of operations laws collectively known as “Factory Physics.” These laws relate various measures of performance, such as throughput, cycle time, work-in-process, customer service, variability, and quality, in a consistent manner, and provide a framework for evaluating classical operations management techniques, as well as evolving new strategies for manufacturing and supply chain management. Concepts and methods are examined via exercises and case studies. The course targets developing skills essential in basic operations management consulting engagements.
