BUS 375 Basics of Operations and Supply Chain Management

3 credits

This course describes the management and control of the processes that create and deliver the goods and/or services of an enterprise. Operations include all of the transformational processes entailed in converting inputs, such as materials and information, into outputs, such as goods and services. Supply chains encompass the inbound, outbound and reverse flows of products, services, and related information, inside and outside of the enterprise, which enable the firm to fulfill its objectives. This course is designed to expose students to the terminology, problem solving tools and methodologies used, and to apply analytics to real-world operational problems. Students will be introduced to sourcing and purchasing, warehousing, production planning, master scheduling, materials requirements planning, forecasting, and distribution processes. Key performance metrics will be explored, as well as the various responsibilities and career opportunities within this field. Success in any field of business can be enhanced with a better understanding of these functions.
