Welcome to the Master's Degree Course in Operations Management! In this program, we will explore the fundamental principles and advanced techniques of managing operations processes in various industries. This course is designed to provide you with the knowledge and skills necessary to excel in the field of operations management and make significant contributions to organizational success. The course aims to develop a deep understanding of operations management concepts, enhance skills in designing efficient operations systems, learn effective strategies for managing operations and supply chains, gain proficiency in using technology and data analysis tools for operations optimization, cultivate sustainable and responsible practices in operations management.
The aim of the course is to provide an understanding of the concepts and operational management methods, with particular focus on the intra-organizational dimension and its extension to the inter-organizational dimension related to logistics and production processes. Therefore, the issues of alignment between operations and supply chains, the measurement of activities and processes, and the planning and control of resources will be explained. This includes the dynamics upstream (suppliers) and downstream (distributors), as well as the potential use of artificial intelligence algorithms and optimization within the broader digital and sustainable twin transition.
The objective of this course is to provide students with a thorough understanding of the concepts and operational methods of operations and supply chain management. During the course, the aim is to develop skills in the efficient design of operations in production and service systems. Additionally, the focus will be on the ability to identify and solve problems in operations management, as well as measurement of performance and operations planning and control. The course will explore procurement management, physical distribution, and supply chain management practices. Furthermore, knowledge will be provided on digital transformations in operations management and the application of modeling techniques. The course will also discuss artificial intelligence and optimization as tools for operations managers to enhance operations.
Upon completion of the course, students will be able to:
Lectures: Engage in interactive classroom sessions led by experienced faculty members who will guide you through the theoretical concepts and practical applications of operations and production management.
Case Studies: Analyze real-world case studies to gain insights into industry best practices and apply your knowledge to solve complex operational challenges.
Workshops and Simulations: Participate in hands-on workshops and simulations to develop critical thinking, decision-making, and problem-solving skills in a simulated operational environment.
