P 429 Operations Processes (3 cr.) P: I-Core. Focuses on the study of the processes by
which products are created and delivered to customers. 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.

competition, process analysis and bottleneck analysis. Computational analysis using
simulation is emphasized.
