The Theory of Constraints, a management philosophy derived from physics, assumes that constraints prevent organizations from achieving better performance. The Theory of Constraints (TOC) is based on a scientific method that has been developed and refined for nearly three decades by Dr. Eliyahu M. Goldratt. As a tool for business management, it is now accepted as a mainstream alternative to cost accounting.

This book:

  • Reveals a new management tool for managerial accounting and shows an alternative path for other management practices.
  • Enables managers to quickly see if their decisions increase profitability.
  • Demonstrates some of cost accounting's flaws, and shows how these errors will lead to bad decision making.
  • Compares the paradigm of TOC-based throughput accounting with more conventional cost accounting methodologies and in the process, demonstrates a new way to solve the complex problems of modern management.
"Cost Accounting is productivity's public enemy number one." Eliyahu M. Goldratt


Features:

  • How our old cost accounting techniques are inadequate and more importantly, can lead us to make decisions which actually harm the bottom line
  • Provide real financial statements and measures that support the concepts in TOC and allow accountants to give production management the data they need
  • How to use TOC to make various financial decisions

Learn how to apply the theory of constraints to management accounting.
