Welcome to BE 603, Operations and Supply Chain Management. This blog supports this Masters level course offered by the Conrad Centre for Business Entrepreneurship and Technology at the University of Waterloo and taught by Professor Peter Carr.
This course is intended to provide students with an understanding of Operations and Supply Chain in manufacturing and service organisations in the private, public and not for profit sectors. While traditional approaches to Operations and Supply Chain are covered, there is particular emphasis in the course on lean approaches that are of particular interest in many organisations today. Lean is understood as having people and technical aspects and this is reflected in the course content.
The course is taught in a blended format with both online and classroom elements and featuring the use of simulations and case studies. Lectures are recorded and can be viewed by students at a time that is convenient to them.
I hope that you will find the course of value.
