The Nature of Operations Management

The Nature of Operations Management.
Operations management relates to the production and distribution of the product that accompanies producers. It may involve departments such as production, stores facilities, maintenance, distribution, and other specialist departments, depending on the nature of the product in question. The management in these departments will have specialist knowledge of production techniques, and perhaps engineering principles. This contrasts with the specialist knowledge involved in the administration of the business, who may be skilled in marketing, strategic thinking, and accountancy.
Both parts are important for the success of the business, the operational side is responsible for the quality, and costs of the product produced, whereas the administration is responsible for the direction of the business and its relationship with its customer base.
We, therefore, consider businesses as having two main parts, 1 the administrative or strategic part, and the other the production part.
