Using the Constraints Management (TOC) to very rapidly take control of a small batch, unstable environment.

• Accelerating product flow using TOC’s « Drum – Buffer – Rope » control mechanism.

• Using buffer management to focus improvement efforts on those that will really make a difference to the bottom line and the plant’s global performance.

• Avoiding noxious local optimums and thereby reconciling the Manufacturing and Supply Chain teams by creating shared global targets.
