Module Title: Operations Management Type of Module: PC (Prescribed Core Module) PS (Prescribed Stream Module) ES (Elective Stream Module) E (Elective Module) Level of Module Undergraduate Year of Study 5th Semester 10th Number of credits allocated 5 Name of lecturer / lecturers : Michael Glykas Description: The aim of this subject is to present the basic concepts of process and operations management. Processes and operations are initially divided into core and supportive and the their basic characteristics are presented and explained. Process and operations are then subdivided into product and services based. Product based core processes are divided into three: sales provision, production and supply chain. The basic characteristics of each one of those processes as well as their core computational techniques are described in more detail. Service based processes are more vague and sector specific and require in depth knowledge of process modeling and analysis as well as workflow management knowledge to be described in detail. Prerequisites: None Module Contents (Syllabus): The module is composed of the following lecture themes: 1 Introduction to Process-Operations Management 2 Core and Supportive Processes 3 Process-Operations Modeling 4 Costing and Analysis in Process-Operations Management 5 Location Selection 6 Human Resources Management 7 Production Planning 8 Project Management 9 Inventory Management 10 Quality Management 11 MRP Systems 12 ERP Systems 13 Processes-Operations Management in the International Environment Recommended Reading: Α) Principal Reference: Subject Notes Β) Additional References: 1.

The main theoretical focus is on process and operation modeling, costing and analysis. There is also a computational focus on the main techniques used in process and operations management like: effort based costing, economic order quantity, critical path method etc. Additionally, the module is aiming at providing students with the necessary skills of applying the aforementioned theoretical underpinnings via the introduction and presentation of information systems like Enterprise Resource Planning and Materials Resource Planning additionally the application of these theoretical underpinnings is further presented via the presentation of real life case studies.
