Innovation session: using throughput to drive profitability22 August 2017
Theory of Constraints (ToC) is a management methodology that focuses on throughput as a means to drive overall profitability across the business. With over 20 years of experience in applying ToC in manufacturing plants throughout South Africa, Konrad Bartel shared key insights into the methodology and its application in the clothing and textiles industry.
This full day workshop comprised a theory component followed by a factory tour of Biodelta, a pharmaceuticals manufacturer that has improved performance through successful adoption of ToC principles in its operations.
The programme included:
Introduction to Theory of Constraints: changing our understanding of profits
The dice game: illustrating the principles of supply chain flow
Business function flow applications: how the principles are applied, with an eye on the clothing industry
Visit to Biodelta: learnings from a Theory of Constraints success story
