THE OPERATIONS CLUB OF IIFT
OpSigma, the Supply Chain, Operations and Energy Club of IIFT was launched in March 2014. It was earlier known as the Energy, Operations and Manufacturing (EOM) Club. OpSigma exemplifies the need of today’s world to migrate towards lean and tries to highlight the ever-increasing OpSigma and results of sustainability in today’s Supply Chain, Operations, Energy and related aspects in an organization and our planet, as a whole.
Operations has always been the most important aspect for an organization since the days of Henry Ford. Be it in terms of inventory and going lean or a continuous drive towards sustainability and green energy, it has gained even more prominence now than ever before. Its OpSigma encompasses the entire value chain and that is where ‘OpSigma’ tries to make its mark. OpSigma, through its activities and publications, will try to foster a culture towards pursuing a challenging and rewarding role in Supply Chain as a career.
The Relevance of Club
OpSigma has continuously been engaged in activities of advancement of knowledge in the field of Operations Management. Under the aegis of Trade Winds and Headstart thought leadership series, we aim to gain insights from industry professionals. Organizing inter- and intra-college competitions through use of case studies, quizzes and discussions is on our agenda too. We serve as the go-to source for all technical clarifications and clearing of doubts with respect to Operations-related topics.
In the business arena, Operations Management and Energy Management have tremendous potential as shown by Ford, Walmart and Dell that have redefined new management practices that have acquired global acceptance. In today’s context, it is extremely essential to establish a strong theoretical base of Operations along with practical knowledge of the best-in-class practices. These concepts of operations management are equally relevant in service sectors too.
