Manufacturing and Supply Operations --- This course introduces the basic concepts and techniques of operations and inventory management. The foundation of the course is a system of manufacturing laws collectively knows as "Factory Physics". These laws relate various measures of plan performance such as throughput, cycle time, work-in-process, customer service variability, and quality, in a consistent manner and provide framework for evaluating and improving operations. Concepts and methods are examined via exercises and case studies.
