What Does an Operational Manager Do?
There are two main roles in operations management: Chief Operations Officer and Operations Manager.
Chief Operations Officer
The Chief Operations Officer (COO) ensures every aspect of an organization runs smoothly and in accordance with expectations. The operational CFO reports to the CEO and, work together to identify problems before they it becomes too big or expensive for either party involved.
The high-ranking executive position known as “COO” has many responsibilities including managing day-to-day work while ensuring all operations meet company standards.
The operations manager optimizes the day-to-day aspects at their company. They’re typically most concerned about what happens when producing products, providing services, and ensuring there’s no capacity constraints, inventory management issues, etc. They need to keep an eye out for both big picture problems and smaller ones.
Functions of Operational Management
Operations management is the art of ensuring your business runs smoothly. Your CFO fulfills various roles, including strategic functions, such as planning and budgeting for projects across different departments within an organization.
Functions of Operational Management Include:
The operations manager’s responsibility for product development ensures consumers get what they were promised as well matching trends of today’s market place with high quality goods.
Product development often starts by generating lots of ideas and narrowing down which ones are going to appeal most widely among potential buyers.
To forecast, you need to account for past data and present new trends to predict what will happen next. The operations manager must forecast consumer demand for products and optimize operations to meet that demand. They rely on these sources when making decisions about how much product should be manufactured or sold at any given time.

The operations manager manages the supply chain process by maintaining control of inventory management, production planning, and scheduling resources to ensure efficient raw materials acquisition and finished products distribution.

The operations manager also monitors pricing trends within different industry sectors carefully, enabling him/her to make more effective decisions on impending contract negotiations.
