Oded Cohen about TOCPA conference in Vilnius:


WHAT IS THEORY OF CONSTRAINTS?

The Theory of Constraints (TOC) is a suite of management concepts developed by Dr. Eliyahu Goldratt as introduced in the landmark book "The Goal". It helps managers decide:

  • What to change?
  • What to change it to?
  • How to cause the change?

Despite it's name, the "Theory of Constraints" is not particularly theoretical. Rather, it helps find practical, effective solutions to business problems. TOC systematically focus efforts, energy and attention on the "system constraint." This constraint, or bottleneck, restricts the output of the entire system and at the same time represents the primary leverage point for improving it. Simply put, TOC means identifying constraints and managing them, resulting in:

  • On-Time In-Full (OTIF) delivery to customers
  • Elimination of stock-outs across the supply chain
  • Better control over operations and far less firefighting
  • Reduced cycle times and therefore inventories
  • Rapid response culture and fewer chronic conflicts between team members
  • Exposing additional production capacity without any investment
  • Higher Net Profit, ROCE & Free Cash Flow

THIS CONFERENCE IS THE PLACE FOR PEOPLE WHO KNOW, USE AND BELIEVE IN TOC AND LEAN (OR WANT TO START USING) AND WANT TO EXPERIENCE THE BEST PRACTICES TOGETHER WITH TOC COMMUNITY

THE CHALLENGE OF ANTIFRAGILITY

An effective way to manage organizations in complex and uncertain environments

Managers and business owners are expected to assure the survival of their companies and to deliver better and better results, in spite of complexity, variability, uncertainty and the availability of limited resources. The common reaction, guided by the fear of unknown, is the tendency to refrain from doing what should be done, or to over-react, doing what should not be done. The presentation will introduce the antifragility approach, a paradigm shift that allows organizations to better face complexity and uncertainty, and will give some practical advices on how Theory of Constraints' mindset and tools can support the path towards a more and more antifragile condition.

Dr. Andrea Zattoni is a Business Consultant and TOC Expert. He has a professional background as manager and Board Member in a big production company and as Contract Professor at the University of Bologna. He is a speaker at conferences on innovative management practices and a lecturer in courses and seminars on the applications of Theory of Constraints. He is focused on helping business owners and managers to transform their enterprises into Ever-Flourishing Companies, by following the Viable Vision process, and on spreading the antifragility concepts and practical applications among companies of the private sector.

THE TOC BUFFER IS A MANAGERIAL MECHANISM – IT IS NOT “ON TOP OF”, “IN CASE”, OR “FOR CONTINGENCY”

Every system has a purpose that is achieved through processes. Managers in charge of the performance of the system have to closely monitor the physical FLOW. The TOC Buffers collect real time data, analyze it and send signal to management. These signals raise alarms when there is a risk of not achieving agreed plans. Hence, managers know when they must interfere and take recovery actions and when they leave the system to flow without their intervention. TOC Buffers and Buffer Management methodology establish Focused Flow Management.
