Re-engineering the Manufacturing System: Applying the Theory of Constraints
This timely, hands-on reference/text provides in-depth instructions on how to design, utilize, and implement a manufacturing system based on the Theory of Constraints (TOC) - facilitating the modification of the traditional system so that it better conforms to practical needs. Written by a recognized expert on the Theory of Constraints, Re-Engineering the Manufacturing System helps identify and eliminate policy constraints that hamper a company's profit-making potential...demonstrates how to remove the problems of the traditional manufacturing system...defines the detailed processing requirements for the identification and exploitation of constraints as well as subordination processes...presents input and output data requirements and system integration strategies...shows how to use the system to support a valid decision process...enables companies to understand and use the information system for recession proofing...and much more.
