11 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 11 Course Goals The objective of MS401 is to prepare students for manufacturing practice and/or research through an advanced treatment of concepts and methods for manufacturing planning and control The outcomes expected from MS401 are: – an understanding of the various subsystems of a modern manufacturing planning and control (MPC) system and their interrelationships – a comprehension of the fundamentals of inventory management – an in-depth understanding of MRP and JIT concepts and techniques – an awareness of current practice and research issues in manufacturing planning and control

13 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 13 Why Learn MS 401 Material? Highly related to real-world applications Presents the terminology, the jargon of production planning and control Good to know even if you will not work in production area Provides the foundation to understand popular subjects such as supply chain management –will be mentioned at the end of the course Good for your summer internship

14 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 14 Operations Management

15 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 15 Operations Management Operations management: Managing all activities related to producing –goods (manufacturing, assembly) our focus in this course –services (healthcare, transportation, retailing) “Operations” is a function of the firm –main functions: operations, finance, marketing –if the firm were a car, operations would be its engine

16 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 16 Scope of Operations Management Imagine that you have just invented “iPod”. You want to produce and sell your new product… What kind of issues you need to think about?

17 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 17 Why Study Operations ? A company’s operations function is either a competitive weapon or a corporate millstone. It is seldom neutral. Skinner 1980s: Japanese invasion of the US market –weapon: operations strategy –American firms focused mostly on marketing & finance Understanding operations management gives YOU a competitive advantage

18 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 18 Operations Strategy Firms compete along… Operations Management: Implementation of operations strategy to achieve competitive advantage Operations Strategy: Positioning the firm along these dimensions

19 Murat Kaya, Sabancı Üniversitesi 19 Why Consider Manufacturing? In the US: Manufacturing is in decline Turkey has been moving towards a being a “manufacturing base” for the European Union
