"The Phoenix Project" book review by Jan van den Berg

"The Phoenix Project" book review by Jan van den Berg | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it

[...] Actually the book could be seen as a modern day version of The Goal by Dr. Goldratt — a book that handles the Theory of Constraints — which I had of course heard of, but never read. The writers of The Phoenix Project make no secret of their admiration for Goldratts’ theory. But DevOps is of course a thing of its own. [...]

When a co-worker handed me a copy of The Phoenix Project, the 8-bit art on the cover looked fun. But the tagline — ‘A Novel About IT, DevOps and Helping your Business Win’ — sounded a bit like the usual buzzword management lingo. But I was clearly wrong, I loved this book!

It is unlike anything I’ve read before and it really spoke to me because the situations were so incredibly recognizable. The book tells a fictionalized story where the main character, Bill, gets promoted — more or less against his will — to VP IT Operations and subsequently inherits a bit of a mess. Things keeps breaking and escalating, ...

Drum Buffer Rope: Resolving Capacity Utilization vs Reliability Conflict in Manufacturing Schedules | Vector Consulting Group

Drum Buffer Rope: Resolving Capacity Utilization vs Reliability Conflict in Manufacturing Schedules | Vector Consulting Group | Theory Of Constraints | Scoop.it

‘Working Paper’ Drum-Buffer-Rope: Resolving the Capacity Utilization vs Reliability Conflict in Manufacturing Schedules

Authored by Dr Shelja Jose. Co-Authored by Eli Schragenheim, Satyashri Mohanty [...] With the evolution of new manufacturing techniques, manufacturing plants became increasingly complex in terms of number of steps in the process, BOM [...] Variability and uncertainty added to the complexity [...] if the plant was loaded to its full capacity, any variability created a cascading effect of queuing delays. [...] but the fear was that if no such aberration occurred, the spared capacity goes to waste (Hopp & Spearman, 2008). Therefore, it was considered that high output is synonymous with poor reliability and visa-versa. [...]

The solution was thought to be in implementing MRP II

[...] Airport luggage is a classic example of a bottleneck, “a resource that can’t keep up with the demand placed on it”, to borrow a definition from The Bottleneck Rules, a recent short book by Clarke Ching, drawing on the work of the legendary business scholar Eli Goldratt. And bottlenecks are everywhere – from traffic jams to self-checkout machines to work meetings that proceed, as the saying goes, “at the pace of the slowest mind in the room”. ...

"So many processes in society are broken and we need to stop being okay with that fact.

As a veteran public servant and Theory of Constraints (TOC) expert, I have seen enough to know that when faced with problems, people often overlook the core issue and go with overcomplicated, ineffective solutions. [...] In my current role as Executive Director of the Governor’s Office of Management and Budget for the state of Utah, I lead an amazing team that utilizes TOC on a daily basis to improve the operational performance of Utah’s governmental structure. [...] I led the effort for Utah to achieve a 27 percent measurable improvement across all government agencies, which resulted in significantly better outcomes for customers and taxpayers. I believe any and every organization will see similar results when they apply these principles correctly.
