Week 1-6 Lecture Syllabus & Course Overview Facilities Planning Linear Programming Scheduling Service Operations Project Management Test 1: chapters 5, 8, 9, 10 Reading chapter 5 chapter 8 chapter 9 chapter 10 7 – 11 Supply Chain Management Production Planning Inventory Management Test 1: chapters 11, 13, 14 chapter 11 chapter 13 chapter 14 8 – 14 Employee Productivity Maintenance Management chapter 18 chapter 19 GRADING: There will be a number of written and lab assignments in addition to the scheduled exams. All work is graded by points. At the end of the semester, the total number of points earned will be divided into the number of points possible. Grades will then be based on this percentage: A = 96 – 100% B = 87 - 95% C = 80 - 86 F = 79% or below Save all assignments after they are graded and returned. Mistakes can inadvertently be made during the grade recording process and if a question should arise about your grade, it will be easier to absolve if all graded and returned work is available.
