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.

Numerically this would be represented as follows: (100 x 2) + (100 x 2) = 200 + 200 = 400. Specifying Constraints An important consideration of the aligned portfolio is an understanding of constraints—be Read More...
