What is Operations?

Operations management involves the management of the production process from start to finish. Production can be a massive source of waste for businesses, so a point person to keep things on track is a vital part of a business remaining successful. If you can follow the supply chain and improve the process through the entire pipeline, you could be a critical part of a business's success. The operations manager can ensure that large scale operations follow strict plans and provide the analytics to back up significant decisions within the pipeline. Operations functions have a lot of moving parts, so you need a critical understanding of the entire supply chain to keep things under control.
