Course content

Evidence from employers shows the need for workforce skills covering a broad range of technologies in an increasingly complex business environment. The transition from manufacturing companies to more service-led companies prompts a need for operations management skills, traditionally deployed in manufacturing companies, in this new breed of companies. This course will provide engineering and management graduates with an in-depth understanding of strategic, tactical and operational issues relating to operations management from an engineering perspective. On completion, participants will be equipped with state-of-the-art concepts, methods, techniques and tools to allow them to contribute towards the competitiveness of manufacturing and service organisations.
