Would you like to learn how to absorb comprehensive know-how in the field of operations, supply chain and logistics – and how to grow into a leadership role? Are you interested in applying that knowledge as a Logistics manager, analyzing the current operational performance of an organization in terms of production and distribution? Do you want to develop the skills to understand an executive overview of the flow of goods between point of origin and point of consumption? If so, then Operations Management and Logistics at the TU/e may well be the master’s program you’re looking for!

Let’s be sure we understand the terminology:

  • Operations form the base of every organization, whether in manufacturing, service or non-profit industries. Operations extend from the performance management of a group of design engineers or building in quality-feedback loops to the precise prediction of production and delivery performance. Supply chain management and service engineering are also part of operations management.
  • Logistics manages the distribution process of resources, ranging from physical items – food, liquids, animals, equipment and materials – to more abstract items such as information, particles and energy.

OML: analyzing an organization’s operational performance

Operations Management and Logistics (OML) is a multidisciplinary field that addresses the efficiency and effectiveness of the operations of an organization. OML offers a broad array of appropriate tracks and specialization-related courses, comprising topics such as:

  • service engineering
  • quality reliability and management
  • supply chain management
  • human performance management
  • data science/artificial intelligence

Improving performance by redesigning business process

Our OML Master of Science (MSc) degree program provides theory, tools and techniques for the management of operations. You will apply the knowledge that you gain during the program in various projects, learning what it means to carry out your own research. The program is coherent and diverse, offering ample room for choice within all tracks. We operate a highly-personalized supervision system and will show you how to analyze the current operational performance of an organization, how to explain it in terms of quality, cost and time, and how to improve this performance by redesigning business processes.

Why should I follow this program at the TU/e and not elsewhere, what makes it unique?

A key feature of the OML program is that the interest of students is paramount in terms of flexibility in the selection process. The program offers the students four tracks (plus a special/free track) that consist of courses that belong together. The final master thesis is written about a subject related to the chosen track, specific to the individual course program as well as the interests of the student. These are the tracks:

  1. Services
  2. Supply chains
  3. Manufacturing and Maintenance
  4. Transport and Mobility
  5. Special/ free track

While the program is at all times one OML MSc program, the tracks are there to guide you from the beginning in order to help you choose the most relevant and appropriate courses for your master’s projects.

The Special/Free track is for excellent (honors) students who wish to design their own master program, in close cooperation with their personal mentor.

Schrijf je in voor de live Q&A ​​​​​​​op 17 januari van 16 tot 17 uur

Wil jij kennis opdoen in operations, supply chain en logistiek? Wil je jouw leidinggevende capaciteiten uitbreiden? Zou je die kennis willen toepassen als logistiek manager en de huidige operationele prestaties op het gebied van productie en distributie bij een bedrijf willen evalueren en verbeteren? Wil jij de vaardigheden ontwikkelen die nodig zijn om een uitvoerig overzicht van goederen doorstroom vanaf het punt van oorsprong tot het moment van consumptie goed te kunnen begrijpen? Als je al deze vragen met 'ja' hebt beantwoord, is de masteropleiding Operations Management en Logistics van de TU/e wellicht iets voor jou!

Even een rondje terminologie:

  • Operations vormen de basis van elke organisatie, of dat nu een productie-, service-, of non-profitbedrijf is. Processen omvatten vele activiteiten, bijvoorbeeld prestatiemanagement van een groep ontwerpingenieurs, de bouw van kwaliteit-feedbacklussen voor het accuraat voorspellen van productie- en leveringsprestaties. Supply chain management en service engineering maken ook deel uit van operations management.
  • Logistics omvat het distributieproces van middelen. Dit strekt van fysieke objecten, zoals voedsel, vloeistoffen, dieren, materieel en materialen, tot meer abstracte concepten, zoals informatie, deeltjes en energie.

OML: operationele prestaties van een organisatie analyseren

Operations Management and Logistics (OML) is een multidisciplinair vakgebied dat focust op de efficiëntie en effectiviteit van de operationele activiteiten binnen een organisatie. Binnen OML komen bijvoorbeeld de volgende onderwerpen aan bod:

  • service engineering;
  • quality reliability and management;
  • supply chain management;
  • human performance management;
  • data science/artificial intelligence.

Prestatieverbeteringen door herontwerpen van bedrijfsprocessen

Onze OML Master of Science-graad (MSc) biedt de theorie, tools en technieken voor operationeel management. Wat je leert, pas je tijdens je opleiding toe in diverse projecten. Hierbij leer je je eigen onderzoek te doen. Het programma is divers en biedt voldoende keuzeruimte binnen alle trajecten. We werken met een zeer gepersonaliseerd begeleidingssysteem en laten je zien hoe je de huidige operationele prestaties van een bedrijf analyseert. Ook leren we je hoe je die prestaties vastlegt in kwaliteits-, kosten-, tijds- en prestatieverbeteringen door bedrijfsprocessen te herontwerpen.
