Operations Management Analytics

This course is a study of how different strategic operational configurations work.  The students in the course will develop the analytical skills necessary to evaluate and understand complex process behaviors and to make performance-improving decisions.  Course participants will manage a simulated company that operates in a complex and data-rich environment.  The students receive the company in a precarious situation, and they must plan and implement strategies to resuscitate the firm and achieve corporate objectives.

Course Date & Time

We have designed the course so that students will need to dedicate about one hour and a half per day to it, on average.   This is in line with expected work at the graduate level, which usually requires upwards of 10 hours per week per course.  For a large portion of the course, students will be working in teams.  

There are five synchronous sessions in this course, whose dates and times are as follows:
