Operations and supply chain management is directly involved in the creation and delivery of an organization’s goods and/or services. Operations management is not specific to any one industry, nor is it restricted to manufacturing enterprises. In fact, all organizations in the private and public sector systems--including airlines, hospitals, hotels, restaurants, insurance companies, and government agencies need to manage their operations vigilantly. Operations managers work with their organizations to find faster, better, and more economical ways to server their customers. The operations management field offers a wide array of career paths from supply chain or service design analysis to manufacturing or service general management.
