Managing limited resources requires effective utilization of limited resources – people, machines, supplies – so as to maximize performance; yet create ever improving systemic performance. This one-day program will introduce the methodology of the “Theory of Constraints” and the drum-buffer-rope technique for implementing system improvements that maximize system throughput and timely delivery without excess inventory or resource buildups. Applications of this methodology include manufacturing settings, sales, marketing, distribution, services, medical centers, construction firms and others. The end result is superior financial performance, lower investment in physical and non-physical inventories and reduced delivery times. Through expert instruction and interactive exercises, managers of manufacturing and service firms from operations, purchasing, finance, sales, marketing and accounting learn how to utilize resources for profit maximization.
