  • Foundation to Operations Management Analytics

    Introduction to Concepts, Tools, Techniques, and Analytics

    Traditional and Advanced Production Systems

    Need for Product Re-design and Development

  • Production and Capacity Planning

    Chase and production level strategy

    Mixed strategy

    Capacity management (CPOF and Capacity Bill, Resource profile)

  • Maintenance and Queue Management

    Preventive and proactive maintenance policy

    Queue planning (M/M/1, M/M/S, M/D/1 models for jobs queue management)

  • Quality and Six Sigma in Operations

    Six-Sigma process in operations

    Quality control charts (X and R-Charts, p & np charts)

  • Inventory Management

    Types of Inventory costs

    EOQ/POQ/PPB models

    Multi-criteria ABC Analysis

  • Materials Resource Planning

    MRP Construction

    MRP Nervousness

    This module will provide insights to construct MRP tables for dynamic/fluctuating product demand. The MRP table provides time scheduling information about when and how much the material needs to procure (order) to meet the market demand of the final product. MRP table will integrate the inventory models discussed in Model VII (Inventory Management) to optimize the ordering policy. Finally, MRP table would help inventory managers to procure inventory at the right time in the right quantity at minimum inventory procurement cost.

  • Forecasting and Demand Management

    Time series models (Exponential, Adjusted Exponential, Winter-holt model)

    Regression (Linear trend model)

  • Predictive Analytics

    Demand forecasting

    Business Simulation in Operations

    This module will provide the use of various forecasting models discussed in Module II (Forecasting and Demand Management) using R and Excel for past sales data. This will help the sales managers/decision makers to estimate the best demand forecast with minimum forecast error keeping the highest level of forecasting accuracy. At the end, this module will enable the participants the application of R and Excel using various forecasting models to predict future demand.

  • Descriptive Analytics

    Vendors selection and evaluation

    Risk Mitigation in operations

    This module will provide the application of various MCDM (Multi Criteria Decision Making) tools and techniques for vendor/ machine/ parts/ product design selection for medium and long term decisions for industry. In addition, the participants will also learn the risk mitigation in supply chain using MCDM. Some of the MCDM techniques covered here are ISM, AHP, and TOPSIS. Finally, this module will help managers/ decision makers in short, medium and long term decisions such as which vendor(s) to be selected for short/medium/ long term duration, and similarly how to mitigate operational risks in the supply chain.

  • Facility Planning and Project Management

    Product, process, fixed and cellular layout

    CPM and PERT analysis of project

  • Predictive Analytics

    Production Management

    Facility Layout Planning

    This module will provide the learning on linear programming models for an optimal utilization of resources in single and multiple period production planning. The module will also cover the impact of market fluctuation on the production cost and its profit. The module will also provide the application of linear models on the optimal design of manufacturing layout to minimize material handling cost which in long run helps in minimizing the manufacturing cost. Finally, the module helps operations managers to make use of this analytics in layout and production planning.
