Manufacturing Management

University of Strathclyde


As demand increases for faster production and turnaround times as well as transparent business models, manufacturing management graduates are sought-after to make a difference by developing and optimising companies’ processes and workflows.

Production no longer simply refers to a physical product, but instead it has just as much to do with services. Alongside the progression of worldwide online shopping and globalisation, as well as competition in price, these changes have impacted opportunities for companies to remain competitive, which means that a single product, for example a laptop or a car, consists of many individual components which have been manufactured all around the world. In turn, this has contributed to complicating companies’ production processes and supply chain.

This course helps you to get a deeper insight into new developing business models for management, as well as the skills and understanding to meet the stringent demands of today's highly competitive industrial environment.
