Operations Management (OM) has been a key element in the improvement in productivity in business around the world. Creating a competitive advantage through operations requires an understanding of how the operations function contributes to productivity growth.
How we manage productive resources is critical to strategic growth and competitiveness. Operations Management is the managing of these productive resources. It entails the design and control of systems responsible for the productive use of raw materials, human resources, equipments, and facilities in the development of a product or service. This workshop addresses the issues of Operations Management and Competitiveness and how the field of OM can provide direction in gaining and maintaining competitive advantage.
Operations Management should appeal to individuals who want to be directly involved in making products or providing services. The entry-level operations specialist is the person who determines how best to design, supply, and run the process. Senior operations managers are responsible for setting the strategic direction of the company from an operations standpoint, deciding what technologies should be used, where facilities should be located, and managing the facilities that make the products or provide the services. Operations Management is an interesting mix of managing people and applying sophisticated technology. The goal is to efficiently create wealth by supplying quality goods and services.
