Keynote speech: "How to find bottlenecks in production and projects"

Good news! You are probably wrong about where your capacity constraints are. We have observed a new situation that has emerged over the past 10 years. In today’s factories or R&D departments, 8 times out of 10, the capacity constraint is in the wrong place. Furthermore, to make matters worse, management is wrong about where its constraint really is. So they over-utilize non-bottleneck resources thereby increasing WIP and lead times and they underexploit the bottleneck because they have not recognized its existence which results in limited throughput. We will attempt to describe what has led to the development of this situation. This state of affairs can be viewed as regrettable...or as an extraordinary opportunity for 8 companies out of 10.


It means that the majority of organizations can transform their performance very easily, very quickly in both their production and their new product development. All they have to do is properly implement the Theory Of Constraints. Several recent cases will be presented and an attempt will be made to identify the common root causes of this situation.

The Master Class: "Theory Of Constraints and Lean, a win-win combination"


The combination of the Theory of Constraints and Lean is a very powerful cocktail.

ToC can be used to identify the constraint of an organization and Lean can then be used to improve the constraint’s performance and this will directly impact the overall performance of the organization.

By staying focused the impact of your Lean initiatives will be significantly boosted. Several case studies will be presented by Philip Marris who has over 25 years of experience of implementing TLS (TOC + Lean + Six Sigma) in all kinds of industry.


La Master Class: "Theory Of Constraints and Lean, a win-win combination"

La combinaison de la Théorie des Contraintes et du Lean est un cocktail très puissant.

A travers plusieurs exemples concrets, Philip Marris démontre comment la combinaison TOC+Lean a un impact direct sur les performances globales de l'organisation, la TOC permettant d'identifier la contrainte de votre organisation et le Lean d'améliorer les performances de la contrainte.

En restant concentrés, vos initiatives Lean seront d'autant plus percutantes.
