15.769 Operations Strategy

This course will address operations strategy by building on the concepts of: Reengineering and process design developed by Dr. Michael Hammer. Manufacturing strategy as developed in the literature, primarily by people at HBS. Supply chain design and 3-D concurrent engineering literature as developed in Charles Fine’s book, Clockspeed: Winning Industry Control in the Age of Temporary Advantage. Perseus Books, 1999. The concepts there emphasize the necessity of integrating product strategy, manufacturing strategy, and supply chain strategy. As a result, each of these will be touched upon in the course.
