This workshop introduces participants to the production paradigm of constraints management.

Simple games comparing balanced capacity and constraints-based capacity production environments are used to illustrate the impact of statistical fluctuation and dependent events on line throughput.

The control points in a production environment are described, and how to plan and control these points using the drum-buffer-rope scheduling methodology is illustrated. VAT analysis and buffer management are described.

Workshop Objectives

  • What are the effects of balancing capacity
  • What is a system constraint
  • The basic components and behaviors of drum-buffer-rope(DBR) scheduling
  • VAT analysis
