About the Course

Market factors and choices made by the organization determine the operating environment for production. The choices are frequently treated as independent decisions, but the choices must be consistent with the market factors and with each other.

Course Description

The primary market factor that must be considered in the design of the operating environment is the customer delivery expectation. Once it is understood, the organization must determine:

  • How to meet those expectations
  • Which modes of processing to employ
  • How to lay out the production facilities
  • How to plan and control the flow of work through the facility

  • Describe manufacturing process choices and how each relates to methods of satisfying customer demand, facility layout choices, and the planning and control of the flow of work
  • Describe facility layout choices and how each relates to methods of satisfying customer demand, manufacturing process choice, and the planning and control of the flow of work
