The purpose of this paper is to explore a theory led approach to teaching operations and supply chain management that has emerged from the analysis of seminal operations management developments and case research. This research identified common operations construct relationships encompassing variation, uncertainty, buffering mechanisms and trade-offs which are used to provide a common basis for explaining these developments, linking established theory with current professional practice. The construct relationships are further shown to comprise three distinct but coordinated strategies that provide a useful framework for case evaluation
