Reflections on Lean Philosophy and the Theory of Constraints
The theory of constraints (TOC) is similar to, yet different from, the lean philosophy. TOC focuses on optimizing production through critical bottlenecks in

example a constraints  customer value-adding activities. Another example is TOC's definition of inventory , which includes all investments in procuring materials to meet customer demand, such as raw materials, work-in-process (WIP), finished goods, and scrap. The crucial point, however, is that, according to TOC, inventory is a liability and certainly not an asset. This is consistent with lean manufacturing's focus on eliminating waste. Finally, TOC's definition of operating expenses encompasses all the money the system spends Read More...
A Matter of Trust
When important information is withheld, it leads to enormous inefficiencies or even disasters in the supply chain. Trust is needed to streamline decision making

A week before the planned promotion, the manufacturer did a promotion on the same exact product at a lower price with one of the retailer's competitors. As a result of that breach of trust, the supplier lost business and took years to rebuild its standing with that major retailer. In another instance, a supplier of a component under severe allocation leaked information to one of its customers about a second Read More...

A few constraints come easily to mind, such as raw material availability, resource availability, and order due date compliance, but Read More...
