Hello, both the operation and the production dept. are important in any of the manufacturing company.

The production dept. focuses on the production of the good and services offered by the company while the operations dept. focuses on the administration, planning and execution of operations involved in production of goods and services and trying to minimize the resources at the same time increasing output.

Operations Management

The supervision, planning and designing of business operations in the field of manufacturing of goods and services is termed as operations management. It tries to cut down resources involved in operations while at the same time making operations more effective and productive. In fact operations management is more concerned on processes than people or products.
Work of the dept:
Identify the customer needs
Identify raw material requirements
Create supply chain for raw material and finished goods


Production Management

Production dept. is the one that involves transformation of raw material (input) into desired product or service (output) by adding economic value.

Types of productions:

Production through separation
Production by modification or improvement
Production by assembly
