    Operations managers have the challenging and rewarding role of designing, scheduling, staffing, controlling, and improving these complex, yet important, productive pipelines profiting the goods and services we all use to enrich our lives. In most organizations, the operations system represents the largest function--usually managing most of the organization’s employees and productive assets and accounting for the major portion of the firms capital and operating expenditures. Thus the operations function would be significant if due only to its size, level of resources and total expenditures required to complete its mission.
