BUS P 429 Operations Processes (3 cr.) P: I-Core. Focuses on the study of the processes
by which products are created. The course emphasizes the process flow method using
three measures of process achievement: throughput (the rate of product delivery),
flowtime (the time it takes to deliver that product), and inventory. Topics include
Little’s Law, the uses of inventory, the importance of time-based competition, process
analysis, and bottleneck analysis. Computational analysis using simulation is emphasized.
