Title Understanding operations management
Description
  • <p>This free course, <i>Understanding operations management</i>, is designed to provide you with a basic framework for understanding operations management and its organisational and managerial context. It begins with a brief history of the changing nature of operations in a manufacturing context, but emphasises that the operations function is significant in all types of organisation, whether they produce goods or provide services, and whether they are in the private, public or voluntary sectors.</p><p>This course presents a process model of operations that describes inputs being transformed into outputs within the boundary of an operations system. It also discusses the role of operations managers, in particular the importance of focusing on suppliers and customers who are outside this boundary, as well as on other aspects of the operations system's external environment.</p><div class="oucontent-box oucontent-s-hollowbox2 oucontent-s-box &#10; oucontent-s-noheading&#10; "><div class="oucontent-outer-box"><div class="oucontent-inner-box"><p>The Open University is conducting a survey investigating how people use the free educational content on our OpenLearn website.
