OM is the area concerned with the efficiency and effectiveness of the operation in support and development of the firm's strategic goals OM include the design and operations of systems to provide goods and services OM is the planning, scheduling, and control of the activities that transform inputs (raw materials and labor) into outputs (finished goods and services). term operations management conjure up views of manufacturing environments, many of these concepts have been applied in service settings, with some of them actually developed specifically for service organizations.
18th century, agriculture was the predominant industry in every country. The advent of the steam engine and Eli Whitney's concept of standardized parts paved the way for the Industrial Revolution with its large manufacturing facilities powered by steam or water The introduction of Taylor's method of scientific management and Henry Ford's moving assembly line brought the world into an age where management was predominantly centered around the production of goods.
late 1950s and early 1960s scholars moved from writing about industrial engineering and operations research into writing about production management Production management had itself become a professional field as well as an academic discipline services are such a pervasive part of our life that the term operations management is used almost exclusively.

Strategic Level (Long term)
Tactical level (Medium term)
Operational level (Lower level)

STRATEGIC LEVEL (LONG TERM). Site location (where will we make it?). And capacity (how much do we need?).
for or associated with making decisions about product development (what shall we make?) Process and layout decisions (how shall we make it?).
TACTICAL LEVEL (INTERMEDIATE TERM).
in deciding employee levels (how many workers do we need and when do we need them?).

. inventory levels (when should we have materials delivered and should we use a chase strategy or a level strategy?). capacity (how many shifts do we need? Do we need to work overtime or subcontract some work?).
loading (what order to we put on what machine?). (LOWER-LEVEL) (daily/weekly/monthly) planning and control.
Operations managers and their subordinates must make decisions regarding scheduling (what should we process and when should we process it?).

manager must have knowledge of advanced operations technology and technical knowledge relevant to his/her industry. Operations managers must also have the ability to communicate effectively. interpersonal skills and knowledge of other functional areas within the firm. and work on multidisciplinary teams. manage projects.

SUPPLY CHAINS —management of all aspects of providing goods to a consumer from extraction of raw materials to end-of-life disposal.
SERVICE OPERATIONS —Coping with inherent service characteristics such as simultaneous delivery/consumption. OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT/FINANCE INTERFACE —Capital equipment and inventories comprise a sizable portion of many firms' assets. OPERATIONS MANAGEMENT/MARKETING INTERFACE —determining what customers' value prior to product development.

products are produced in small quantities Machines and equipment are laid out by process Work loads are generally unbalance Highly skilled operators are required for efficient use of machines and equipment In-process inventory is large Flexible to suit production varieties Examples Machines shops.
Entire project is taken as a single operation Work is to be completed on each product before processing the next item Versatile and skilled labor is needed High capital investment Control operation are relatively simple High unit cost of production Example Ship building. dam construction. bridge building

.CLASSIFICATION OF MAINTENANCE FUNCTIONS
The availability of plant can be defined as
A = Tup / TUP + Tdown
A = availability of a plant Tup = the cumulative time of operation in the nominal working state Tdown = the cumulative down time.
Types of maintenance policies
MAINTENANCE MAINTENANCE MAINTENCE
is carried out at predetermined intervals and is intended to reduce the likelihood of an equipment’s condition falling below a required level of acceptability. can be time based / condition – based
Item is expected to wear out within the life of the equipment The total costs of replacement of the item are substantially lesser than those of failure replacement repair.
TIME BASED IS EFFECTIVE The failure of any item
an equipment is timedependent.
CONDITION BASED IS EFFECTIVE In response to a significant deterioration in a unit as indicated by a change in monitored parameter of the unit condition or performance.
Reduction in the number of accidents in the plant. and consequently reduced maintenance expenses. Reduction in the number of rejects and an improvement in product quality. Reduction in the unplanned or crisis management in maintenance.Advantages
