Connect for Operations Management Features

Practice Operations Simulation Game

OMintheNews is a blog and newsletter available in Connect or stand alone that was created for operations management faculty by operations management faculty, to supplement any course with up to the minute and relevant OM course material that’s followed by critical thinking questions for class discussion! All articles and videos are mapped by chapter to McGraw-Hill Operations Management titles.

Interactive Data Problems

Interactive Data Problems that allow students to visualize and interact with data in different ways. Students use this tool to manipulate data and answer a variety of accompanying problems that test multiple levels of understanding.

Operations Management On-Location Video Series

These on-location videos highlight real companies and their actual manufacturing processes, bringing key operations management topics to life. These videos are mapped to topics and chapters and are available within the Connect resources.

Concept Overview Videos

These assignable videos with corresponding questions provide students with additional reinforcement on core topics in the chapters. Created by instructors, these personal videos will bring online courses to life and help supplement any face-to-face class. The videos are followed by auto-graded concept-check questions, and they are organized by chapter within Connect.

Guided Video Hints

These narrated, animated, step-by-step walkthroughs of algorithmic versions of assigned exercises provide immediate feedback and focus on the areas where students need the most guidance. Available for most Operations Management titles.


Available within Connect, SmartBook 2.0 personalizes learning to individual student needs, continually adapting to pinpoint knowledge gaps and focus learning on concepts requiring additional study. For instructors, SmartBook tracks student progress and provides insights that guide teaching strategies and advanced instruction, for a more dynamic class experience.

Algorithmic Problems

Algorithmic problems are auto-graded exercises using different numeric values each time a problem is served up to the student. This gives students practice in working a problem several times – same question, but different numbers each time. This also deters cheating because each student in a class or lab receives a slightly different version of the problem and correct answer.

Connect Reports

Save time and gain student insights. Connect provides customizable reports on student performance, learning outcomes, at-risk students, and integrates easily with LMS gradebooks.

Testing Integrity: Proctorio

McGraw Hill and Proctorio have partnered to seamlessly incorporate assessment integrity tools within Connect.
