This is an advanced unit. It builds on other units in the Master of Business Administration including ACCT20077 Accounting for Management Decision Making and ECON20040 Economics and Finance for Business. Operations management and business analytics explores the contemporary principles and practices involved in the management of both service and manufacturing operations. Taking a strategic approach to operations, you will examine fundamental concepts such as process planning, design, control and Six Sigma continuous improvement; quality management and lean thinking; the role of the supply chain in modern operations; capacity and location principles as well as the use of project-based activities in an operational environment. You will utilise data from a variety of organisational sources including financial, economic and market information and develop mathematical models as part of the analytical process leading to more effective operational decisions. The unit also provides you with the opportunity to engage in independent research using evidence-based approaches to identify workplace issues and recommend viable solutions that enhance organisational effectiveness.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task,
based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%,
or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must
also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task,
as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the
