The Theory Of Constraints is created by Eliyahu M. Goldratt author of The goal for, and It’s Not Luck.
When manufacturing shops learn and implement the five steps to Theory of Constraints the gain more time as a weapon of competitive advantage, our software removes the emotion and uses real data to pinpoint the primary constraint.
My simple interpretation of the Theory Of Constraints is as follows. Every process has a single constraint, and total process throughput can only be improved when the weakest constraint is improved.
Example: if a product has three operations sales, program, and fabricate.
- 10 orders a day come from sales
- 07 orders a day are programmed
- 20 orders a day get fabricated
In this simple example once programming can complete 10 jobs or more the system can only output 10 jobs a day.
The real world is much more difficult repeat jobs, various due dates, material availability, job complexity, and different quantities result in each operation having a different percentage of work needed for each job. We know what to look for and pinpointing the primary constraint is our specialty.
How do you get there if you don’t know where you are going?
- What are your companies 12-month goals?
- What does your team think your goals are?
- Do you know the goals of each of your managers?
