Mid-Term Study Guide
Study Guide Mid-Term
Operations Management 300
We have covered a wide spectrum of topics in the first half of Operations Management 300.
In the Mid-Term Exam you are responsible for knowing the definitions of each chapter title and main points. I.e. What is the name of the chapter; what is the definition of the main topics in that chapter?
Every item on the test was covered in the class in a Power Point. Often the subject was further explored in a video or group discussion.
However, there are many questions where you will need to extrapolate an answer from your familiarity of the definitions and understanding of the applications of the topics.
Do review the following:
