Philip Marris's curator insight, August 25, 2013 3:42 PM

To quote from his website: "I spent quite some time living in Japan working within a large corporation that was both a batch manufacturer and a significant supplier to Toyota.  Their batch production mode had always caused them to decline “offers” from Toyota to improve their process and timeliness (but not their products which were in every sense of the word “World Class”).  However, together, we were able through Theory of Constraints to produce very significant improvements within a very short period of time.  Results that were significant enough to be reported in the national business press and also national television.

Let me say that I have deep respect for the fundamental techniques of Japanese kaizen, and of Toyota in particular.  Let me also say that I am not ignorant of Lean nor of its predecessors; World Class Manufacturing, Just-in-time, and so forth.  But there is something that is wrong with Lean (and Six Sigma) and I want to try to explain this. ...."

Agile and the Theory of Constraints – Part 1 and 2 by Eric Gunnerson

Agile and the Theory of Constraints – Part 1 and 2 by Eric Gunnerson | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it

I’ve been spending some time over the past few months exploring the lean side of the house and looking for things I can adapt into the agile side of the house. The most interesting thing I found was the theory of constraints.

What is a Good Plan? The relationships between planning and execution | Eli Schragenheim

What is a Good Plan?  The relationships between planning and execution | Eli Schragenheim | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it
A ‘plan’ is a group of decisions and guidelines, most of them to be executed sometime in the future, in order to achieve a desired objective.  Describing the objective, the outcome of the plan, including the criteria for determining the quality of the outcome, is the first mission of any planning. For instance, a project…

Introduction to Drum Buffer Rope (DBR) and SDBR | Pinnacle Strategies

Introduction to Drum Buffer Rope (DBR) and SDBR | Pinnacle Strategies | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it
Drum Buffer Rope (DBR) is a planning and scheduling solution derived from the Theory of Constraints (ToC).

The fundamental assumption of DBR is that within any plant there is one or a limited number of scarce resources which control the overall output of that plant. Synchronizing to this resource creates a drumbeat or pace of production. The plan for this resource is called “drum”. Other resources, (non-constraints) then match their pace to this resource.

Aerosud talks about Critical Chain Project Management on it's website

Aerosud talks about Critical Chain Project Management on it's website | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it
[...] CCPM planning results in the identification of the project’s critical chain, this is the longest path of dependent tasks and is therefore the constraint of the project which in turn determines the time duration of the project. When executing the project, CCPM focuses on the efficient completion of the critical chain tasks. At Aerosud a visual means of focus has been implemented through the use of a significant object, known as a “mascot”. A “mascot” is given to the resource performing the task on the critical chain, upon completion of this task the mascot is then moved to the resource performing the next task on the critical chain. In so doing the “mascot” moves along the sequence of tasks making up the critical chain. With a “mascot” on his/her desk, the resource must only work on the critical chain task, in so doing multi-taking is eliminated and focus is ensured. Aerosud has implemented the use of several fun “mascots” to further visually enhance the significance of the critical chain task. ...

Antifragililty and TOC by Uwe Tech

Antifragililty and TOC by Uwe Tech | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it
The concept of “antifragility” has been a hot topic in the business world since the release of Nassim Taleb’s latest book. A quick overview can be found in this blog post – based on a short video intro by Taleb himself. Dr. Alan Barnard picked up the topic at this year’s TOCICO conference in his presentation “What does not kill us makes us stronger… or not”1,with the aim of showing how the Theory of Constraints can help systems (i.e. organizations, supply system or even individuals) become “antifragile”.
