Objectives

In the end of this course the students must have expertise''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s on:

 - Understand the importance of the production and operations management in the organizations;

- Identify and characterize several production environments;

- Characterize main production costs and production capacities;

- Establish aggregate plans and master production plans;

- Define materials and resources needs according to the MRP logic;

- Schedule operations in different production systems  (ERP, JIT/Lean, TOC).

During this course we also promote team work and leadership.

 

Prerequisites

Is advised that students have some expertise in: Inventory Management, Operational Research and Quantitative Methods.

Teaching method

Lectures are carried out combining theoretical classes and applied classes.

Evaluation method

The course grading shall be based on the following:

Group Assignment (GA) +

EX or Mid (T1) and End (T2) semester tests if Ts>7v and  (T1+T2) average > 9 v

GA is used to decide access to a final exam (obtained if  TG > 9 ).

FINAL GRADE = 0.4 TG + 0.6 EX
