A new approach to improving the production of goods and services, Constraints Management (CM), recognizes the powerful role of the constraint (the limiting resource) in determining the output of the entire production system. By learning about and mastering CM concepts, managers can improve their companies' present output and plan for future growth as well.
This comprehensive how-to manual is for managers who are interested in adopting the production planning and control methods first described in Eli Goldratt's bestselling book, The Goal. The reader is guided step-by-step through the entire process, with easy-to-understand examples and real case studies, showing where and how to best apply those methods in the three fundamental manufacturing structures. 300 pp. Pub: 9/96.

This is part of series of books that are a deeper dive into Theory of Constraints (TOC). This book - as well as others in the series - are very well and very interestingly written. Better to have at least a basic grasp of TOC or you'll miss the real value in this series.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
