Aims/Description: Operations Management (OM) deals with the production of goods and services and relates closely to other business functions. It is concerned with the effective and efficient marshalling of the organisations resources to meet its objectives. OM is the business function that generates income and is therefore central to all commercial businesses. Operational Research (OR) is introduced on this module to support OM decision-making processes. It is a systematic and logical approach involving the construction and manipulation of mathematical models. The aim of this module is to take a general view of OM in all sectors of business and to provide a wider experience of OM and OR for the MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain Management.
