IM 604 - Manufacturing Systems Analysis
This course examines concepts and techniques in manufacturing and operations management. Primary emphasis of the course is development of a system of manufacturing “laws” that relate various measures of plant performance, such as throughput, cycle time, work-in-process, variability, and quality into a consistent framework for evaluating classical operations management techniques as well as evolving new strategies. Analytical tools used include probability and statistics, queuing models, and simulation. Exercises and case studies examine both concepts and methods. Prerequisite(s): MATH 215 - Survey of Calculus or equivalent, IM 603 - Survey of Statistics or equivalent, or approval of graduate advisor. Lecture-Lab (ex: 3-1 means 3 hrs lecture and 1 hr lab): Three hours lecture.
