The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena
Lean principles are difficult to employ in complex environments, but materials requirement planning has well-known limitations. The theory of constraints, which

jit theory  environment, however, the kanban JIT approach no longer makes sense, since the product mix by product type, routings, and process times becomes widely divergent, causing the prediction of kanban sizes to be impractical and temporary, or wandering bottlenecks to appear all over the shop floor. Indeed, where the order mix changes or not all resources are dedicated to lean flow manufacturing, then kanban sizes must continuously be reevaluated. In these situations, a theory of constraints (TOC) approach is of Read More...

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

jit theory  to lean manufacturing techniques. JIT or lean works best when items have low variability of demand, when production lines can be dedicated to specific product lines, and when lead time from trading partners is reliable. When different product lines and streams use shared resources, TOC might be needed to consider different product mixes in the round. Poor order shipment performance with late deliveries (within shops whose capacity is wasted on anonymous, forecasted orders, instead of expended on actual or Read More...

All these concepts and practices basically say the same thing: “Improved Business Process + Supporting Technologies = Competitive Adva Read More...
