TOC Emerges

“The Theory of Constraints (TOC) has spread as a leading managerial philosophy during the last two decades. TOC is successfully implemented in thousands of companies and organizations, large and small, throughout the globe. It has been implemented in the areas of production, logistics, distribution, project management, research and development and sales and marketing. Implementations span across a multitude of sectors in all industries: the private and public sectors, flow manufacturing as well as job shop operations, start up companies as well as corporate America, for profit and not-for-profit organizations. Implemented properly, TOC leads to significant results in a relatively short time. However, contrary to the vast application of TOC in practice, TOC research published in refereed academic journals is lagging behind. TOC should be proven as a continuity of previous research rather than a stand alone new concept. TOC practitioners should seek for academic examination for the validity of the tools and the understanding of the implementation process.”

 


The evolution of TOC in 30+ years

Theory of Constraints provides a set of holistic processes and rules, all based on a systems approach that exploits the inherent simplicity within complex systems through focusing on the few “leverage points” as a way to synchronize the parts to achieve ongoing improvement in the performance of the system as a whole.
