Course Description: Study of the design, planning and operations and control of manufacturing processes, material management, inventory quality control systems, work measurement and production standards. Pre-requisites: MA120, FI360, MG352 or equivalents. 3:0:3
Educational Philosophy: To provide the student with an understanding of the basic concepts of operations and production manufacturing in modern manufacturing and service organizations. There will be an emphasis on the increasing use of technology, improved productivity and quality, materials and inventory planning and management and just-in-time production systems. This faculty member follows a hands-on method mastering financial concepts through the solving of problems. I believe learning and instructing should be fun.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses must include a core assessment
that measures the relevant Departmental Learning Outcomes. The purpose of
this assessment is to determine if expectations have been met concerning
mastery of learning outcomes across all instructional modalities. The core assessment for this course is a
final exam which counts for 20% of the grade. Questions on the final
exam will be developed to test at least six of the eight course core
Link to Class RubricClass Assessment: Exams over the reading material, an article at the beginning of each class that directly relates to the assigned chapter. Additionally, each student will provide the instructor with seven (7) “Weekly Reports” via email, due by midnight each Saturday. Each weekly report will answer the following four (4) questions in bullet format.
1. Hours spent this week studying Production and Operations Management to prepare for class:
2. Hours spent this week reviewing articles to prepare for class:
3. Hours spent this week studying with other classmates to prepare for exams:

Grading: The following procedure is used to determine the course grade:
Exam 1 Chapters 1 – 2 00% of grade
Exam 2 Chapters 1 – 5 20% of grade
Exam 3 Chapters 6 – 10 20% of grade
Exam 4 Chapters 11 – 15 20% of grade
Comprehensive Final Exam 1 – 18 30% of grade
Weekly 10% of grade
Late Submission of Course Materials: There will be no acceptation of late materials, unless deployed, or previous arrangements have been made with the professor. If given then: The first exam missed may be made up as long as it is before the next class. If a second exam is missed the student will receive no credit for the second exam, unless the Park University office approves the excuse for missing the exam and allows a make up exam. All make-up exams must be completed prior to the class's next meeting. The student will need to provide a doctor's excuse, a note from work, or other documentation. If permission is granted, the student MUST get an appointment (before the next class) from the office to take this proctored comprehensive exam. Failure to take a make-up exam will result in a zero for that particular examination.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Professional conduct and mutual respect is expected.
The lecture relies on the fact that you have read the assigned material and are prepared to discuss it.
No interruption while students are taking exams, discussing and/or asking questions about the material.
Cell phones and pagers are not allowed.
Class starts at the published time and attendance will be taken. No Exceptions!
