Schedule and details
The “Operation Management” lecture shows that any organization needs to be regarded as a component of a Supply Chain in which different actors (suppliers, manufacturers, retailers) as well as the different functions (marketing, production, finance) interact. Understanding and mastering the relationships between these different actors will improve the effectiveness (achieving the objectives) and the efficiency (achieving the results at least cost) of the system.
Over the last decade, numerous small and large firms have dominated their market through the superior performances of their system of production, distribution, and information processing. These systems deliver a better service quality at a lower cost while maintaining the flexibility necessary for adaptations to market evolutions. During this master class, all aspects of a supply chain – the objective, the process and the strategy will be dealt with.
This free of charge lecture will be delivered in English with a coffee break. You are welcome to bring accompanies.
