Operations management is the administration of business practices to create the highest level of efficiency possible within an organization. It is concerned with converting materials and labour into goods and services as efficiently as possible to maximize the profit of an organisation. The multidisciplinary functions of operations management form the lynchpin of businesses the world over and success can often be directly attributed to it. Juggling them seamlessly to maintain optimum throughput is the characteristic of a competent operations manager.
