Description: This course teaches students how to use business processes to enhance productivity and quality, while offering customers greater choice and service. The course consists of case study videos, which introduce a problem at businesses ranging from restaurants to banks. Based on the concepts learned, students will share measures they would implement to make the operation more efficient. Along with video quizzes, students will complete weekly homework, produce a class project, and complete a final exam.

Review: “The course was introductory but gave a great insight into operations management. Operations management is massive and has many subjects into it. Hence one such introductory course was not exactly the easiest to teach for the prof but he did an amazing job using basic examples with simplistic explanation. Using the mouse for scribbing is also something you won’t find anyone else doing but it helps so much for one to understand. Felt like an actual student. In terms of the course content it does not teach all the basic aspects of operations but to do so will take months more than proposed time frame. Hence using primary modules of productivity, quality, variety, process analysis was sufficient for beginners. Hope that prof thinks of using an intermediate course so that working professionals can use advanced tactics in tackling issues of real life.” For additional reviews, click here.

Additional Note: edX also offers an Introduction to Operations Management. Starting on August 18th, the course will be taught by B. Mahadevan from the Indian Institute of Management. To learn more about the course, click here.
