Manufacturing Systems II from MIT
Manufacturing systems are complex systems that require analytical analysis. Managers and practitioners use a wide variety of methods to analyze and optimize the performance of manufacturing systems and control costs.
In this course, part of the Principles of Manufacturing MicroMasters program, you will learn about Multi-Part-Type Manufacturing Systems. We will discuss Material Requirements Planning (MRP), Multi-Stage Control and Scheduling as well as Simulation and Quality.
This course will enable you to develop an intuition about stochastic production lines. You will understand the importance and cost of inventory buffers, run basic simulations and optimizations and develop a policy to manage production systems.
The topics that we cover will provide the basis for you to continue into the manufacturing field in roles such as operations manager and supply chain manager.
