Theory of Constraints

Theory of Constraints

TOC- Theory of Constraints is a methodology developed by Eliyahu Goldratt. It is a methodology for identifying the constraint, most important limiting factor that stands in the way of achieving a goal and then systematically improving that constraint until it is no longer the limiting factor. Constraint is also referred as bottleneck. Bottleneck management is widely used terminology in manufacturing, services, construction, hospitals, retail..

Some of the benefits that TOC can bring to organization are:

  • Increase in capacity through bottleneck management
  • Reduction of inventory
