International Conference:

Emerging Trends in Operations and Analytics

We are at the crossroads of technological advancement and operational excellence, where big data analytics, supply chain analytics, automation, industry 4.0, optimization, trade-off management, logistics excellence, coordination, and supply chain relationships are the buzzwords. In an increasingly connected world, the traditional function of operations management has undergone a metamorphosis.

Operations management which was often considered a horizontal function has now established itself as a vertical, with multiple branches and varied ramifications. Considering the aforesaid development, this conference aims to understand how the change in perception of the operations field from being considered as a horizontal function to an established vertical, can lead to the creation of sustainable competitive advantage. With this agenda, the Department of Operations and Information Science Management, T A Pai Management Institute, Manipal, India in collaboration with Montpellier Business School, Montpellier, France is organizing the International Conference on Emerging Trends in Operations and Analytics. Nowadays, operations managers provide vital insights on how to align the operations strategy to the overall organizational goals. Also, business analysts and supply chain specialists are delivering futuristic predictions about the impact of technology, network design and quality norms on the operations of the firms. Analytics is playing a key role in decision-making in every field, and operations management is no dierent. The integration of analytics and operations has optimized the processes to a great extent. The impact of analytics is seen in services operations as well.
