In this module you will learn about the management of operations. An operation can be described as a transformation process of inputs into outputs, or as the technical core on which the other primary functional areas of the firm are based.

The term ‘operations’ can be applied to most endeavours that effect change within the environment. A clear understanding of past technological and managerial developments within industry can help provide a strategy for dealing with the existing trends and future challenges within operations. The present rate of technological change is much greater than has previously been experienced and presents both challenges and opportunities to organisations.
