Text: R. Russell & B. Taylor, Operations Management: Quality and Competitiveness in a
Global Environment, John Wiley & Sons; 5th edition (2005), ISBN: 0471692093.
Course Objective: Familiarize students with the application of quantitative and qualitative
methods to assist in management decision-making in a competitive environment. Students will
be introduced to best of breed in operations management practices enabling them to implement
world-class operational systems for service and manufacturing oriented organizations.
Instructional Method: Lectures will be complemented by case discussions, SAP application
demonstrations (during lecture and in the lab) and case videos. Students will also be working on
group case assignments applying their learned theoretical models and methods to improve
organizational operational effectiveness.
Grading: Three hourly exams (60%), and three group projects (40%).
Class Attendance: Students are required to attend all scheduled lectures. Our classroom
discussions skip over many parts of the text and some of the quantitatively oriented material is
difficult to understand by simply reading the text on your own. Additionally, lectures are either
followed by a video and/or project team meetings, therefore, showing up for class becomes a
critical element of success.
Prerequisites: MA 145/146 or MA 207/208 (linear algebra, and elementary statistics) and
familiarity with spreadsheets (i.e. Excel, Lotus).
Academic Integrity: Learners are expected to work independently on all exams and properly
cite any references used for group projects.
