This Theory of Constraints one-day training program will show students how to blend Lean, Six Sigma, and Theory of Constraints into the most powerful continuous improvement model ever created.
A system is only as strong as its weakest link. Generally, Lean tools that teach us how to create flow ignore this. We are taught to balance the line to Takt Time and miraculously flow will occur. How is that working out for you? Many systems have bottlenecks (constraints).
These can frequently stop Lean flow tactics dead in their tracks. Understanding how to exploit constraints rather than surrendering to them is what Theory of Constraints is all about.
