In this post, I shall be giving some points due to which the projects get delayed in spite of the use of tools such as Gannt chart, etc. So here goes;
TOC does not concern itself with optimization of a particular portion of the company. It concerns itself with the improvement of the entire system.
As discussed in my previous blog post, a single point in the entire workflow can choke the flow of work. This point otherwise known as the constraint is to be taken as the most important part of the whole process. In hindi this may be known as "Nuss" or the nerve centre of the entire process.
On reading my previous post you may be think that it is the responsibility of a person (Constraint) to improve or that the person is the reason that the whole process is bogged down. Now it is true that a person can be the constraint but it is also true that the constraint can also be a machine or a policy.
As my first post, I would like to start on a topic which is of immense interest to me. This is the Theory of Constraints (TOC) which was originated by E. M. Goldratt. TOC is in simple terms, the focused or lazy man's style of doing operations.
