About this course
Production technology and supply chain topics shape the future of the manufacturing industry. Major developments in the context of Industry 4.0 require highly qualified engineers with comprehensive knowledge of stateof-the-art technology and methods to successfully realize innovative concepts. Only a multidisciplinary approach can meet the requirements of today’s interconnected flow of data, products, and money in production and logistics.
Graduates of the Master Program Production & Operations Management (POM) are able to analyze and optimize the efficiency of value-added processes within the operation of production and service systems. They can understand and analyze service and production processes, capture and formally describe requirements, frame boundary conditions and targets and achieve a targeted improvement by means of the skills they acquired in the Master Program concerning production management with special focus on production processes, information technology, logistics and human resources as well as on the technical methods and tools required.
The graduates are familiar with state-of-the-art concepts and methods and are able to apply those problemoriented and further them. Methods and techniques in conjunction with decision making are especially focused on in Operations Management.
In addition, graduates can identify the possibilities and limitations of formal methods and models as well as the challenges that represent the transmission between the modeled world and reality and handle them in a solution-driven way. Given that nowadays in production and logistics the flow of data, products and money are closely interconnected, graduates are able to solve problems taking into account these tree factors and multi-disciplinary solution approaches. On top the master program shares five management modules with the other master programs. This fosters the network across industries and provides the participants with general knowledge in finance, accounting, marketing, international multiproject management, international law, and human resource management.
By this they can consider the commercial implications of project decisions and develop a holistic view.
