Throughput-Dollar-days (TDD) and Inventory-Dollar-Days (IDD) – the value and limitations | Eli Schragenheim | Theory of Constraints (Engpasstheorie) | Scoop.it
The concept of multiplying money by time has occupied a lot of thought from Eli Goldratt for quite long time. The entities of money and time represent two different dimensions and thus the product of the two represents their combined impact. In the financial area value-days are known for very long time, but with one…

This post is target at people who know Throughput Accounting well and are ready for an intellectual exercise.  I think that the title Throughput Economics fits better than Throughput Accounting in describing a methodology that supports superior decisions, but has very little relevancy to accounting.

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

Introduction to Drum Buffer Rope (DBR) and SDBR | Pinnacle Strategies | Theory of Constraints (Engpasstheorie) | 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.

There is a basic contempt in management circles towards theories.
