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

accounting of lean production  concept of income, TOC accounting provides a simplified and more accurate form of direct costing, one that subtracts true variable costs (those costs that vary with throughput quantity). Also unlike traditional cost accounting systems, in which the focus is generally placed on reducing costs in all the various accounts, the primary focus of TOC accounting is on aggressively exploiting constraints to make more money for the firm. Similarly, TOC's goal is to maximize throughput on the bottleneck, which is Read More

For example, in most automotive supplier plants where lines and cells are dedicated to producing a single part for a single vehicle line, there is good alignment between what we think is happening and what is really happening from a database point of view. If changes in demand or design are expected to occur, a what-if scenario, using the existing IT Read More
Pull vs Push: a Discussion of Lean, JIT, Flow, and Traditional MRP Part Two: Challenges and User Recommendations
While lean/flow leverages practices to stay ahead of actual demand, traditional approaches better coordinate secondary, back-office systems like accounting and

Moreover, flow should be a company-wide strategy that does not only impact manufacturing. Thus, many prospects will be more amenable to the flow manufacturing product designed to complement an MRP II or ERP system rather than replace it. To that end, for example, Oracle's and American Software's system offer full support for demand flow techniques on the shop floor while also providing a standard interface to the rest of Read More
