Florent Bonne testimony: Theory of Constraints in Production at SKF

Client Testimonial - SKF


Florent Bonne, Factory Manufacturing Manager at the SKF site in Valenciennes, explains how the application of the Theory of Constraints can improve the industrial performance of a factory.


The SKF Valenciennes teams used this method to align the factory's production capacity with customer demand and thus improve productivity.

This made it possible to introduce notions of flow and a culture of continuous improvement.


As improvements were made, the bottleneck of the plant shifted. With the introduction of DBR to control flows, the crossing time has been significantly reduced: the lead time has been halved. By working on constraints, the end-of-month phenomenon has disappeared.


Implemented for around ten years now on this site, this approach has made it possible to increase the output flow by approximately 50% and increase the overall productivity of the factory by 30%.
