Business Process Center

This center enables students to gain real-world business experience by finding a damaged business process then redesigning and improving that business process to increase a company’s effectiveness.

The Business Process Center generally consists of 3 to 5 students per team and up to 10 teams per semester.

Students become familiar with the business process modeling and process control software and gain experience in management and control of a process with two classes:  Bus 456 - Quality Management students help improve business process outcomes by reducing wasted time. In Bus 439 - Systems and Simulations, similar processes are simulated to determine how to improve resource cost, lower process cost and increase output. 

Bus 456 - Quality Management

As a member of a process-management team, students examine firm culture and compare it to the best practices of Total Quality Management, Six Sigma, and Lean Production. Then students develop a process-policy for the actual company that includes the following:

  1. Purpose of process, expected output, interaction with other processes
  2. Process flow diagram
  3. Methods of controlling the process in real time
  4. How an input, output, and dependent condition should be measured
  5. How to display the measure
  6. How to respond to a given measure
  7. Who to communicate the condition of the process in identifying decline in communications
  8. How to ensure the control process they develop is controlling the process question

BUS 439 - Systems and Simulation

The class project focuses on any process that displays variability in input, processing, and output. Student teams simulate a process and, from the information provided from the simulation, determine improvements. Students then explore the costs and benefits from a selected improvement. They report their findings and recommendations to executives of the partner firms in a firm setting.

Degrees associated with the program are Operations Management and Mechanical Engineering (can take as a technical elective)
