Teaching Experience:
Core Course in Operations Management. Focus of this course is on the central role of the operations
function in coordinating the resources of the firm (work force, materials, equipment/technology, and
facilities) so that chosen markets can be served efficiently. Special emphasis is placed on the strategic
implications of operational decision making, and the interface between operations and other functional
areas within the firm. Topics addressed include process analysis, system performance measurement,
service operations management, supply chain management, quality management, capacity planning,
facility location, and operations strategy. A set of detailed lecture notes (~125 pages) and three computer
simulation exercises have been developed for this course.
Core Course in Quantitative Methods. This course is an introduction to the general classes of models that
can be used to aid in improved decision making. Special emphasis is placed on model formulation and
structure, sensitivity analysis, and spreadsheet modeling. Topics include linear programming
formulation, solving linear programming problems using Excel, sensitivity analysis, network models,
integer programming, incorporating uncertainty into the decision-making process, decision trees,
conditional probability, and simulation. A set of detailed lecture notes (~ 150 pages) has been developed
for this course.
Elective in Supply Chain Management. This course was developed to focus on tactical decision making
in operations. Topics include inventory control under continuous and periodic review, aggregate
production planning, master production scheduling, material requirements planning, resource
coordination and scheduling, and just-in-time systems. A set of detailed lecture notes (~ 125 pages) and
several simulations have been developed for this course.
Elective in Service Operations Management. This course was designed to develop a better understanding
of best practices in the service sector, and to provide leading-edge examples of innovative firms and the
strategies they have employed to create and maintain competitive advantage. The course emphasizes the
close coordination of marketing and operations in the design and implementation of service delivery
processes where the same person may produce and sell the service, the importance of developing both
human and technical skills among employees who represent the most critical point of contact between the
service organization and its customers, and the role of technology, in particular information technology,
in changing the nature of the service delivered and/or the way in which the service is delivered. The
course relies heavily on analysis of a series of case studies, and includes a group project where the
principles developed in the course are applied to a real service organization.
Operations Practicum. This course was designed to provide students with an opportunity to apply
operations concepts and techniques to better manage material, manpower, equipment, and inventories in
real manufacturing and service delivery systems. By interacting with one of several local manufacturing
and service organizations involved in this projects course, students are expected to understand the
mechanics of an actual operational system, and to identify, analyze, and solve any important problems
encountered. Problems may be tactical in nature (e.g., inventory control, production scheduling, quality
management) or involve more strategic issues (e.g.,} technology assessment and choice,
product/process/market consistency, coordination of operations and corporate strategy). Participating
companies have included Northern Telecom, IBM, Black and Decker, Coca Cola, Scientific Atlanta,
Gambatte Digital Wireless, American Cancer Society, Packaging Corporation of America, and AT&T.
Ph.D. Seminar in Production Planning, Scheduling, and Control. This course focuses on operational
decisions that affect the cost, quality, and delivery performance of manufacturing systems, synthesizing
recent conceptual and methodological advances from the literature. Topics addressed include the impact
of replenishment decisions on cost and quality, inventory control under demand uncertainty, coordination
of production in a multi-echelon environment, resource planning and scheduling, and project
management. A set of detailed lecture notes (~100 pages) has been developed for this course.
Project Supervision for the Management of Technology Graduate Certificate Program. I have organized
and directed projects at the Coca-Cola Company, NCR, Southern Company Services, and Scientific
Atlanta in which students have analyzed investment decisions associated with technologies for assuring
product quality, the research and development process, software change management, and material flow
in automated manufacturing.
Executive Education. I have participated in executive development programs for Lockheed Martin,
Scientific Atlanta, UPS, and Apple South, and have taught in numerous executive education programs. I
have also developed modules on project management, supply chain management, decision and risk
analysis, operations management, and service operations for several Executive MBA programs.
