Modules

This module aims to develop knowledge, understanding and skills in Operations and Supply Chain Management. The module covers the relevant fundamental theory and practices for these key functions and gives an insight into the diversity of the functions and what the key issues and concerns are related to strategy, design, planning and control and improvement. Operations and supply chain management is a critical subject for every business and management student as it is a key area of employment and career opportunity. Every product and service is produced and delivered by series of operations or activities, and chains of suppliers. The effective management of these functions often determines the success of organizations in both manufacturing and service settings.The module stresses the practical problem solving nature of the discipline and we bring in many industrial experts to present their cases to reinforce and expand the theoretical components. We focus on the global aspects of operations and the coursework project provides you with an opportunity to explore those operations management topics currently valued and relevant to industry in great depth (for example, resilience, re-shoring, 3D printing, smart cities).
