A Peek into the World of the Theory of Constraints August 15, 2017 |

Thursday, 31st August – 18.00hrs for an 18.30hrs Start
Lecture Hall B Les 101, Ground Floor, Red Block, Auckland Campus, University of Johannesburg.

About the Topic:

Most supply chain professionals have probably heard about the Theory of Constraints or TOC for short. The methodology, which revolves around the famous Five Focusing Steps, also consists of thinking processes and tools, as well as a range of supply chain optimization solutions. The speaker will provide a high level introduction on the subject, and then drill deeper into the supply chain solutions as it has evolved over the past 30 years or so.

These supply chain solutions are now essentially “packaged” in a set of templates which can be applied to manage the constraints in consumer goods companies, manufacturing companies, and also retail applications. These templates are known as Strategy and Tactics Trees, and are comprehensive company interventions with one single objective – how to become an ever flourishing company! A portfolio of software applications have now been developed which runs alongside ERP systems to provide companies with a “TOC view” of their supply chains.

The presenter will also provide an overview of TOC projects across a wide range of industries in South Africa during the past ten years, and share in the exciting and powerful end results of a successful implementation.
