The key to replicating Alex Rogo's achievements described in The Goal lies in the ability to transform production from the prevailing cost-world mentality into the common sense approach of the throughput-world mentality by evaluating the performance of a section based on its impact on the performance of the system as a whole.

Dr. Goldratt shares the full analysis of the dilemma faced by production (what to change?) and reveals the TOC solutions (what to change to?) for Drum-Buffer-Rope (the logistics mechanism) and Buffer Management (the control mechanism).

  • Drum - the schedule of the tasks at the constraint.
  • Buffer - providing protection against uncertainty (Murphy) for the constraint so that the system can maximize throughput.
  • Rope - communication process from the constraint, choking the release of work to be in line with the constraint.
  • Buffer Management - a process for prioritizing, according to the Drum, the tasks which haven't arrived yet at the constraint

Understand the TOC Body of Knowledge that can be put to work right away to significantly increase performance
