What is the scope of operations management?

Operations management spans across organisations. The people working in operations management can be involved in a variety of different positions, including:
  • Product and service design
  • Technology selection and management
  • Process selection
  • Facilities planning
  • Location planning
  • Work system planning
  • Quality improvement

There are many interrelated activities in operations function, which include the following:
  • Forecasting
  • Capacity planning
  • Quality assurance
  • Inventory management
  • Scheduling
  • Motivating staff

All companies will have operations but they will be different as they are dependent on the businesses themselves, but they will also have things in common. Regardless of the business, most organisations will have operations such as scheduling activities, ordering and managing supplies and motivation employees and so on.
