What does our "5 tanks" logo mean?

Home / Who are we? / What does our logo mean?

The logo of Marris Consulting consists of five interconnected tanks.

Philip Marris, founder and CEO explain its origins in this video interview (in French).

In a nutshell:

  • The five tanks stand for 5 resources, each having a different capacity
  • The one in the middle has a limited capacity and is the bottleneck.
  • Inventories (liquid in the tanks) pile up in front of the bottleneck while resources after the bottleneck are regularly starved.
  • The bottleneck controls the throughput of the whole system, hence the importance to properly manage it in order to maximize the overall performance.

Such a bottleneck is the system's constraint, preventing it from obtaining more of its "goal units".
