Home * Courses * WSQ Modular Programmes * WSQ Programme in Operations MaNagement Innovation (OMNI)

The Workforce Skills Qualifications (WSQ) Operations MaNagement Innovation (OMNI) Programme is a joint initiative by the Singapore Institute of Manufacturing Technology (SIMTech) and the SkillsFuture Singapore (SSG) Agency. The objective is to train key personnel -- engineers, managers and senior staff of companies--to be technology innovators to achieve manufacturing excellence. This is accomplished by promoting the use of operations management techniques and technologies that support a company's strategy. This will ensure that operations improvements are both effective (aligned to the company's strategy) and efficient (set to achieve the desired productivity gains).

About the WSQ OMNI Programme

The programme offers a proven Operations Management Innovation methodology (OmniMethodology™) based on R&D, proven through highly successful applications in various sectors of the manufacturing industry. It consists of two parts: classroom training and mentorship.



The classroom training focuses on transferring knowledge in operations management and use of this methodology. The mentorship reinforces the classroom learning by applying the said methodology in the student’s company. At this on-site training, the participant will identify operations improvement areas, generate suitable initiatives and develop implementation action plan that are based on productivity improvements, mentored by SIMTech’s trainers.

Uniqueness of the WSQ OMNI Programme

As operations management is a continuous improvement process, this programme equips participants with the necessary knowledge and skills, to systematically use the OmniMethodology™ to continuously improve the effectiveness and efficiency of the companies’ operations. This is similar to ensuring that companies can use this methodology to ‘fish’ for a life-time rather than be provided with fish for a day.

This programme is relevant for: 

  • Management officers/directors
  • Supply chain/procurement/logistics managers and senior staff
  • Inventory/warehouse management managers and senior staff
  • Manufacturing/production/engineering managers and senior staff
  • Industrial engineering managers and senior staff
