Rationale
On one hand, the revolution of information technology has forced mechanical operations based. industries to integrate this technology in their day to day operations and on another hand, optimum utilisation of resources with quality objectives has become base for survival. This course will develop in the students the abilities to search for better solutions for any operating problems/situations by logical thinking and to develop analytical skill by learning important operation management techniques. The routine work and routine systems are being handled by the people at the operating level in industries with integration of computers and operations management philosophy. The stress is given on operations management, cost effectiveness and quality aspects with computer based information systems, which are required in day-to-day operations in industries for smooth and efficient operations. Proper and rapid flow of information improves the decision making process and the industrial relations as a consequence
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes.

i. Perform various tasks like market survey, demand forecasting, shop floor and plant supervision, etc.
ii. Utilize resources optimally and efficiently.
iii. Implement and monitor data base management systems for mechanical based industries.
