As a part of a special topics course, Resilient Design and Crisis Management in the Master of Science in Operations Management program, is a four-part lecture series. In this session, Dr. Marty Matlock, Executive Director of the University of Arkansas Resiliency Center and Professor of Ecological Engineering at the University of Arkansas, speaks about Resilient Life Support Systems in Cities: Water, Food, Energy, Shelter. The course expands the knowledge of preparing for, managing, and responding to a crisis including preparation through resilient design. Using foundational knowledge from the Department of Homeland Security, Federal Emergency Management Administration, and industry standards, the course guides operations managers in the preparation, prevention, and response to emergency incidents and the techniques used to add resilience to operations. Human resources, supply chain, organizational structure, authorities, legal frameworks, emergency operations centers, and private/public partnerships including critical infrastructure protection are explored throughout the course.
