There are subtle points to be noted.
for instance, when you re engineer some aspects of operations say in the production area that has been been going on for several years to enhance productivity when time cycles are reduced, capacities are enhanced and may be, equipments are made free for other areas of the operation then to optimize these from the lab to the pilot and scale it up to the plant can become a project by itself.
I have been involved in such examples and would be happy to share the gist of it on a personal level

sorry for the delayed response eduga11. It seems to me one cannot really have a generic statement as to which is more challenging. It is entirely situation dependent.

Operations Management:
Operations management is responsible for overseeing, directing, and controlling business operations. Production operations, manufacturing operations, accounting operations, software support, and maintenance are examples of operations management.
It makes sure that the businesses operations are resourceful, minimum resources are used, and customersí expectation and requirements are met. Operations deliver products, achieve quality, and create services.
Project Management:
A project is a temporary endeavor undertaken to produce a unique product, service, or result. It has a defined start and end point and works according to a specific goal and objective. Projects are temporary, and they help to meet goals of the organization when aligned with the organizationís strategy. It is the application of knowledge, skills, tools, and techniques to project activities to meet the project requirements.
Difference between Operations Management and Project Management
An operation manager is responsible for the budget of a whole department and the cost associated with it. It includes salaries, costs of managing and maintaining their workplace, etc.
A project manager is just responsible for the budget of the project that he is currently working on. It includes revenue that is generated during the tenure of the project.
The operations manager has day-to-day management responsibilities, and many of those tasks will take place in business as usual schedule.
The project manager is only responsible for making sure that the project he is managing is on time. It includes responsibilities like scheming a delivery date, planning milestones and then tracking development. In short, he ensures that all the tasks stay on track.
Skills development:
The operations manager is responsible for improving skills and career of his department. It could be through training, coaching, and mentoring the staff.
Project managers donít necessarily have line management responsibility for their team members. They just need to lend some extra help or information if required.
