Description: These days, operations is considered to be a competitive differentiator in enhancing customer experience and reducing costs. But it isn’t a one-size-fits-all endeavor. And it requires operations professionals to closely partner with marketing and finance to execute company strategy. In this course, students will learn the tools for establishing processes, reducing bottlenecks, establishing quality control, and managing suppliers and delivery chains. In addition, they will study frameworks and metrics for evaluating capacity, lead time, and inventory management. The course will be taught through readings, video lectures, and quizzes.

 Review: No reviews.

Additional Note: Professor Anand recommends that students come with a basic knowledge of statistics, including variation and distribution. This course is part of a seven course specialization (“Improving Business Finances and Operations”) from the University of Illinois.
