15.356 How to Develop "Breakthrough" Products and Services (MIT) 15.356 How to Develop "Breakthrough" Products and Services (MIT)

Description

Includes audio/video content: AV selected lectures. To prosper, firms must develop major product and service innovations. Often, though, they don't know how. Recent research into the innovation process has made it possible to develop "breakthroughs" systematically. 15.356 presents several practical concept development methods, such as the "Lead User Method," where manufacturers learn from innovative customers. Expert guest speakers present case studies that show the "art" required to implement a concept development method. 15.356 is a half-term subject. Includes audio/video content: AV selected lectures.

15.760A Operations Management (MIT) 15.760A Operations Management (MIT)

Description

Our objective in this course is to introduce you to concepts and techniques related to the design, planning, control, and improvement of manufacturing and service operations. The course begins with a holistic view of operations, where we stress the coordination of product development, process management, and supply chain management. As the course progresses, we will investigate various aspects of each of these three tiers of operations in detail. We will cover topics in the areas of process analysis, materials management, production scheduling, quality improvement, and product design. To pursue the course objective most effectively, you will have to: Study the assigned reading materials. Prepare and discuss cases, readings, and exercises in class. Prepare written analyses of cases.

The Vancouver 2010 Winter Games were undoubtedly a success. One only has to remember the throngs of crowds lining up to have their photo taken with the Olympic Flame, the new urban developments that showcased Olympic events in the centre of the city, and the incredibly beautiful backdrop to the events of mountains, sea and glass-filled urban landscape that characterises one of the most beautiful cities in the Western hemisphere.
