  • How operations need to decide how to vary their capacity (if at all) as demand for their products and services fluctuates.
  • How operations relate to each other in the context of a wider network of suppliers and customers, and how these relationships can be managed.
  • How transformed resources accumulate as inventories as they flow through processes, operations or supply networks.
