example 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.

Finally, TOC's definition of operating expenses encompasses all the money the system spends Read More

Infor , for example, claims that dozens of its customers, operating in a similar environment, have had significant improvements in performance and profitability within two or three months. As long as management buys in, the methods and the tools are available.

Nonetheless, relative to industry competition, results could be quite impressive. In Read More
Aligning IT and the Business: An In-Depth Look at Scoring - Selecting and Scheduling the Project Portfolio
This Business Engine white paper provides a technical account on the process behind scoring, selecting, and scheduling the technology portfolio. The document

Numerically this would be represented as follows: (100 x 2) + (100 x 2) = 200 + 200 = 400.
