According to manufacturing journalist TR Cutler, companies which implemented Theory of Constraints (TOC) Operations solutions have typically found 20% – 50% spare capacity hidden by chaos under traditional methods of management.
Overdue orders, backlogs, and missed deliveries are the problem according to Cutler. He will be examining TOC vendor solutions as many organizations report a significant amount of salespeople and senior managements’ time is spent trying to expedite orders, convincing operations to change the schedule and priorities, pacify customers, and generally engage in non-value adding activity.
Vendors offering TOC solutions should contact Cutler for the in-depth 12-part feature article series being authored this September.
