  1. Introduction to the Theory of Constraints
  2. Understand the five steps to process improvement based on TOC.
  3. Visualization of the Theory of Constraints on the Kanban Board


The Theory of Constraints (TOC) (also known as bottleneck theory or throughput management) refers to thought processes and methods for improving the performance (throughput) of systems based on the findings of Eliyahu M. Goldratt.

The bottleneck theory is based on the insight of the system theory that the throughput of a system is exclusively determined by a limiting factor (the bottleneck or constraint). An improvement of the throughput requires that the entire system, starting from the limiting factor, is optimized across the board.
Based on the bottleneck theory, successful practical methodologies have been developed for production control, for marketing and sales, for trade, for supply chain management, for finance and controlling, for strategy development and, above all, for project management (critical chain project management).

This presentation will help employees understand and comprehend the Theory of Constraints and its importance in the context of process optimization.
