This course examines Production Operations from a systems perspective, and demonstrates how dynamic interchanges between the constituent parts of the system affect the operations and maximize efficiency and effectiveness. This course relates to the management of product and process design, operations, and supply chains. Areas of emphasis are quality management, scheduling, inventory management, purchasing, material management, JIT and manufacturing strategy. This course includes substantial measurement and analysis of internal processes. This course demonstrates that the products or services in an organization, as well as their management, drive how Operations Management is carried out in an organization.

The goal of the course is to increase and enhance the students' knowledge of tools and techniques used by managers in the management of production and procurement operations in the following areas: operations decision-making: quality assurance: statistical quality control: product and service design: process planning and technology decisions: facility layout: location and analysis and logistics management.The goal of the course is to increase and enhance the students' knowledge of tools and techniques used by managers in the management of production and procurement operations, and in the bases on which these tools and techniques are founded.

Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Discuss and explain: A. The role of production and procurement operations management in organizations, B. the major contributors to the body of knowledge, and C. the productivity challenge facing U.S. business today as they compete in a global economy. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 4)

2. Demonstrate an understanding of capacity planning decision making through the issue of rate adjustments and capacity measurement. Apply cost-volume analysis using quantitative models such as decision tables and trees. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 5, 7)

3. Calculate operational forecasting through the use of forecasting techniques such as time series, and exponential smoothing. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 4, 5, 6, 7)

4. Discuss the advantages and disadvantages of facilities location in the U.S. and throughout the world. Demonstrate knowledge of how to analyze locations though the use of both qualitative rating schemes and quantitative analysis. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 2, 3, 5)

5. Demonstrate an understanding of the operations network through the application of the transportation model and the transportation method of analysis. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 3, 7)

6. Determine and explain the importance of work measurement and design within the overall work system. Illustrate an understanding of human factors in design and methods and machine reliability. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 3, 5, 6, 7)

7. Justify the types of inventory systems and illustrate an understanding of such systems as ABC and EOQ through software application. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 3, 6)

8. Explain the philosophy of continuous improvement and assess how the Deming approach links culture, problem-solving tools, and control into a quality concept. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 4, 5, 7)9. Prepare a PERT and CPM schedule, including recognizing when it is appropriate to utilize these techniques and their limitations. (MSM Program Outcome 1, 3, & 7)

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
