Operations Management is the function of managing the operating core of an organisation: the activities associated with creation, production, distribution and delivery of the organisation’s goods and services. The Operations Management group at IIM Kashipur works on identifying, developing, documenting, interpreting for practice, and disseminating innovative approaches in Manufacturing and Supply Chain Management. The discipline of Decision Sciences is concerned with the study and application of various data analysis, modelling and optimization tools and techniques that are useful in the real world decision making situations in various areas of management. These approaches are based on model-based research and synthesis of best practices from around the world.

To impart the students with the relevant knowledge and skills necessary for successfully applying these tools and techniques in various areas of management. Special emphasis is laid on the model building aspect, and exposing the students to a wide range of real-world-situations and how they can be modelled and solved using the tools of decision sciences.
