The set of resources includes an organization's know-how, facilities, work-force, materials, and equipment.
Operations Management issues permeate all levels of an organization's decision making from the long-term strategic to the tactical to the day to day operations.
14. Operations management is concerned with the design, operation, and improvement of the production system that creates the firm’s primary products and services.
[Even Mocha Madness, Kinkos, and Portneuf Medical Center are production systems]

experience in operations?

“Services never include goods and goods never include services.” (True or false?)

Disney World or Disney Land

(500hrs*$9/hr) What do these calculations tell us?
More importantly -- What don’t they tell us?
59. Applying Productivity Figures You’ve just told your boss that the plant labor productivity is better than that of a plant in a related business. What does this really mean?
60. Productivity measures need to be tracked over time
need to include all possible inputs
are difficult to compare between companies or industries
do not (directly) include measures of timeliness or quality
