Specific course information

This course presents the fundamentals and basic tools of the operations engineering and management in organizations. The purpose is that students understand the functions of the operations area and its relationships with other areas, such as marketing, finance and human resources. The student will be able to evaluate, select, adapt and use the models and software applications for the planning, programming and control of operations, inventories and the allocation of limited resources. Eventually, those models should lead to the improvement of the performance of the organization, in particular of its operations area.

Specific goals of the course

Learning objectives:
  • To recognize the operations function and its relation with the strategies of the organization.
  • To identify and apply the concepts of process management and their relations with the organizational strategies and technology.
  • To calculate, interpret and identify the importance of forecasts for the planning in the short, middle and long term.
  • To identify the relationship between client orders and operations programming.
  • To identify the importance of the aggregate planning of operations and resources and its relationships with other processes of the organization.
  • To select and apply the inventory models to meet deterministic and random demand.
  • To identify and design a master plan of production, a plan of materials requirements and a plan of capacity demand.
