Introduction to Operations Management: Course Description

MIT Professor Jérémie Gallien has designed the course 'Introduction to Operations Management' to familiarize management students with the development and implementation of manufacturing and service systems. 'Introduction to Operations Management' OpenCourseWare provides the public with access to the same reading list, lecture notes and assignment information used by management students at MIT's Cambridge, Massachusetts, campus. The course lecture notes cover key topics like quality management, process analysis and procurement. In addition, 'Introduction to Operations Management' OpenCourseWare, for students pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Management Science, contains a reading list of articles and case studies that provide real-life examples of the topics covered in the course. For example, the operations management procedures of successful companies like Burger King, McDonald's and even Barilla are explored in 'Introduction to Operations Management' readings and lectures. There is a primary textbook and a recommended text, both of which can be purchased online.

'Introduction to Operations Management' OpenCourseWare allows anyone with an Internet connection to view the class reading list and download the course lecture notes and assignment information in .pdf format.
