BUS 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. 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.
