Also, only certain industries like high-tech, aviation and defense (A&D), and consumer packaged goods (CPG) have been the best candidates to adopt flow manufacturing, because they can most feasibly achieve feedback from reconfiguring the shop floor into dedicated production lines for product families, around which flexible and cross-trained work teams are established. However, for other organizations, that feat will not happen overnight, 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

flow of material  there is an uninterrupted flow of work coming into the constraint, so that it never has to wait for work (i.e., an inventory buffer is kept in front of the bottleneck to ensure that it is never idle). Subordinate everything else to the constraint. Since the efficiency at other resources does not really matter, there is no point in upstream work centers producing more work than the constraint can absorb. It is sufficient to provide an indication of the task priority of other non-bottleneck resources, Read More
