What is Manufacturing Operations Management?

Manufacturing operations management (MOM) is an approach to overseeing all aspects of manufacturing processes with an emphasis on informed decision-making, effective planning, efficient operations, and quality management. Achieving these objectives relies on the ability to eliminate uncertainties and errors and optimize resources to maintain consistency across the entire supply chain.

For effective manufacturing operations management, it helps to visualize the organizational “big picture.” Are all operational units receiving and sharing the right information and data in a timely fashion for optimal productivity? One way to achieve this objective is to establish a closed-loop paradigm where comprehensive, real-time data is readily available to all relevant stakeholders. The core of this closed-loop process is a strategic model based on effective collaboration.

Why is Manufacturing Operations Management Necessary?

Given the growing complexity of manufacturing operations with the large amounts of data companies collect and process, automating manufacturing operations management is not only helpful, it’s necessary for keeping pace with the fast-moving manufacturing industry.

When business units are isolated and communication is random and disconnected, they often experience production delays and wasted resources from misaligned supply chain management. For example, if a production process changes, the modifications often need to be approved, tested, documented, and reported. To prevent prolonged production delays, the people involved need immediate access to the most current data in order to make the necessary changes and quickly distribute the required documentation and reports.
