Business literature, only recently, has discovered the existence of business functional silos. However, the TOC production application has, from its inception, incorporated close synchronization between production, marketing, sales and finance.

Thirteen authors from eight countries present an exciting and practical guide of how to manage production for the benefit of the company as a whole. Eli Goldratt\'s lead article, an overview of where TOC fits into the theoretical/philosophical production domain, and the often misunderstood concept of flow, is, by itself, worth acquiring a copy of this book.

Content:

  • Major Principles of Managing Production Flow
  • TOC Applications to Production Management
  • TOC Implementation in Production
  • TOC Tools for Understanding Production Environment
  • Case Studies
