Production Management Programme

Production Management Programme



Course Summary

If there is any activity that directly affects a business, it is production. As a matter of fact, most of the businesses began their thought processes through the production concept. The intense levels of competition have resulted in the need to perform every activity in a very systematic and professional manner with the sole aim of enhancing returns to all stake holders. Production is one such function and is considered to be the second most important function in an organisation. The function of a production manager is to ensure the utilization of resources in the most efficient and effective manner. To achieve success in this function, he / she must plan every activity extremely meticulously, not just at the macro level, but also at the micro level.
