BEA is a leading association of professionals using efficiency methods in Latvia; its aim is to help companies becoming more competitive by sharing their knowledge and practical experience of applying efficiency improvement methods. This performance research can help you in situations where you need to: improve customer relationships, increase efficiency and accuracy at work, engage and motivate employees for change, create and maintain a work-life balance, avoid burnout and overload. 

BEA was founded in 2008, around think tanks bringing together practitioners with methods of improving efficiency in their businesses, including Lean. 

The conference and Master Class will be in English, translated into Latvian and Russian

 

Conference: "Boosting performance quickly using the Theory Of Constraints combined with Lean"

 

Combining Lean and the Theory of Constraints creates a powerful cocktail. The Theory Of Constraints enables a company to identify the critical elements (the constraints) that are blocking performance of the company and then the Lean (or Lean Six Sigma) tools can be used to improve the performance of the constraints which will directly and quickly improve the overall performance of the company.

Some experts say the Theory Of Constraints (TOC) is not compatible with Lean. In this presentation we will show why this is not true. To do this we will describe good Lean and bad Lean, and also good TOC and bad TOC. Then we will show that “good Lean” and “good TOC” can easily be combined and that the incompatibilities are not critical and can be managed.

Industrial improvement efforts over the past 30 years have been handicapped by quarrels concerning the relative merits of the different approaches and of the supposed incompatibilities or fundamental differences among them. The presenter considers, on the contrary, that we should seek to combine them thereby creating a system that contains the best aspects of each movement.

Implementing the Theory Of Constraints plus Lean enables companies to go faster and further.

 

Master Class: "How to combine the Theory Of Constraints and Lean to quickly boost operational performance "

 

This workshop will explain how to implement what Philip Marris presented in his speech the previous day on the merits of combining the Theory Of Constraints and Lean.

This one day event will combine a description of the concepts (the “theory”) and many case studies from Philip Marris’ 30 year experience in over 250 factories throughout the world.

We will explain in detail the implementation process using the 5 Focusing Steps of the Theory Of Constraints (TOC):

  1. IDENTIFY the system's constraint(s).
  2. Decide how to EXPLOIT the system's constraint
  3. SUBORDINATE everything else to the above decision.
  4. ELEVATE the system's constraint
  5. WARNING!!!! If in the previous steps a constraint has been eliminated, go back to step 1, but do not allow INERTIA to become the system's constraint.

In this way, and illustrated by real life examples, we will see how combining Lean and the Theory of Constraints creates a powerful cocktail. The Theory Of Constraints enables a company to identify the critical elements (the constraints) that are blocking performance of the company and then the Lean (or Lean Six Sigma) tools can be used to improve the performance of the constraints which will directly and quickly improve the overall performance of the company.

During this one day workshop the Theory Of Constraints’ approach to Project Management – Critical Chain Project Management / CCPM – will also be briefly described.

Some people say the Theory Of Constraints (TOC) is not compatible with Lean. In this workshop we will show why this is not true. To do this we will describe good Lean and bad Lean, and also good TOC and bad TOC. Then we will show that “good Lean” and “good TOC” can easily be combined and that the incompatibilities are not critical and can be managed.

Implementing the Theory Of Constraints plus Lean enables companies to go faster and further. This workshop explains how to do it.
