Krannert Operations Club

Mission:

The Krannert Operations Club is an organization whose mission is to expose students to real-world opportunities through the following functions:

  • Speaker led series
  • Plant tours (Toyota, Harley Davidson, Caterpillar, Rolls Royce, Fed Ex, Amazon)
  • Case Competitions
  • Guest Speakers
  • Information Sessions
  • Kaizen Events
  • Workshops
  • GSCM (Global Supply Chain Management)
  • APICS (The Association for Operations Management)

Through these different channels, we hope to broaden the understanding of Operations beyond the traditional classroom setting. During the course of the year, we will be holding different events and bringing various operational leaders from the industry to provide students with insight and future outlook.
