Guided by the values of faith, zeal for service, and communion in mission, this course uncovers the meaning of production operations management --- how
this information is used by decision makers in different business roles. This is achieved by helping you realize your full potential (has passion for
excellence) individually and in collaboration with diverse stakeholders, and thereafter, in participating responsibly in church (God- loving), industry, and
nation-building (patriotic).
This introductory course intends to make you conversant and familiar with the conceptual and procedural aspects of production operations management. It
will provide you with the basic knowledge of how quantitative and qualitative decision making is used in the day to day operation of production and service
operation decision makers, and the techniques and methods are used to classify, summarize and present meaningful operation from a mass of business
data. Since production operations management is so pervasive, an understanding of its uses and limitations is valuable whether you will eventually
become the chief executive/operating officer, marketing manager, a finance manager, an entrepreneur, or a local government official.
