Presentation of Philip Marris' book Le Management par les Contraintes

Constraints Management: the Theory of Constraints (ToC) applied to industrial operations

Executive Summary of the 1994 book

This text does not represent the author's current views on the importance of integrating the 3 main approaches used in the world today: ToC / Theory of Constraints, Lean and Six Sigma. This combination is often referred to as TLS. Industrial improvement efforts over the past 20 years have been handicapped by quarrels concerning the relative merits of the different approaches and of the supposed incompatibilities or fundamental differences among them. TLS considers, on the contrary, that we should seek to combine them thereby creating a system that contains the best aspects of each movement. Each school of thought – Lean, Six Sigma & ToC – has proven its effectiveness, otherwise they simply wouldn’t exist. When combined they are formidable.
