Is the course required or an elective for a Curriculum?
No
Tools, techniques, and strategies used for analyzing and improving business operations, including process mapping, capacity analysis, demand forecasting, and quality analysis and improvement. Emphasis on Excel as a tool for analysis, particularly on Excel functions and modules relevant to operations analysis.

This course is being revised to include significant Excel content. Team exercises will all involve Excel functions and modules relevant to operations analysis. Also, the course is being renamed to “Operations Modeling and Analysis” to reflect a more specific focus on operations management.

Student Learning Outcomes

By the end of this course, you will be able to:



  • Analyze single-item and multiple-item processes by computing flow rates (capacity), utilization, and cycle times

  • Understand and analyze the impact of process complexities like batching, yield losses, and uncertainty in arrival and processing times on process performance

  • Develop and deploy models to forecast uncertain demand for products and services

  • Apply a range of quality analysis tools to guide decision-making in process improvement

  • Apply basic queuing models and process simulation tools to analyze and improve processes under various assumptions about uncertainty in demand and processing time

  • Do all of the above in the context of Excel, using a variety of functions and modules in this software
