What does our "5 tanks" 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".
