Grid abstract



Agile, Lean and Competitive Enterprise (ECMM113)


Detailed Description

Module Code: ECMM113

Module Lecturer(s): Prof David Zhang

In an ever changing world, businesses can stay ahead of the game by using competitive strategies. Manufacturing and service are two industries that benefit from employing a range of enterprise concepts and techniques, including lean enterprise and agile manufacturing.

Lean production concerns the creation of quality products, expending less human energy and using less equipment, time and space. Agile manufacturing, meanwhile, relates to bringing new products into changing markets anf the ability to be innovative and to thrive in a changing environment.

The module will be run in two substreams - lean enterprise, and agile manufacturing and others. One of the key aims is to encourage independent learning, so, while lectures will serve as a guide to topics, you will learn mostly through directed reading, class discussions and a research dissertation.

Prerequisite module: ECM2106 or equivalent. 

Bookings are limited to one person per module. If you require multiple bookings please contact empsmsc@exeter.ac.uk.
