The Theory of Constraints Enters the Lean Manufacturing Arena
Lean principles are difficult to employ in complex environments, but materials requirement planning has well-known limitations. The theory of constraints, which

jit theory of constraints  environment, however, the kanban JIT approach no longer makes sense, since the product mix by product type, routings, and process times becomes widely divergent, causing the prediction of kanban sizes to be impractical and temporary, or wandering bottlenecks to appear all over the shop floor. Indeed, where the order mix changes or not all resources are dedicated to lean flow manufacturing, then kanban sizes must continuously be reevaluated. In these situations, a theory of constraints (TOC) approach is Read More...

Drum-Buffer-Rope is a TOC approach for regulating the flow of work-in-process (WIP) at, or near, the full capacity of currently the most restricted resource in the manufacturing chain. To that end, companies should never release material before the earliest calculated material requirements date, and they should release only enough material to match product flow.

Trends Affecting Manufacturers and ERP Part Three: Four More Trends
The evolution of ERP systems has been driven by the emergence of new business practices and information technologies. These have been supported by the growing

APS logic has been incorporated into some ERP systems as the primary engine for coordinating supply chain activities. Many ERP systems provide APS logic as a supplement to MRP logic, such as a finite scheduling module. The following case study highlights some of the issues in integrating APS logic with MRP logic. Case Study: Integrating MRP Logic and an APS Application One ERP software vendor integrated a stand-alone APS application wi 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

JIT or lean works best when items have low variability of demand, when production lines can be dedicated to specific product lines, and when lead time from trading partners is reliable. When different product lines and streams use shared resources, TOC might be needed to consider different product mixes in the round. Poor order shipment performance with late deliveries (within shops whose capacity is wasted on anonymous, forecasted orders, instead of expended on actual Read More...

However, flow manufacturing leverages some additional techniques to help manufacturers create any product on any given day (i.e., through the so called mixed-model production), while keeping inventories to a minimum and shortening cycle times to fill customer orders ever more quickly. Flow manufacturing in particular leverages mathematical tools to automate some of the aspects of lean Read More...
