Bureau Léonard implements and supports TOC-solutions (Theory Of Constraints)
The actual business situation, more than ever, needs focusing. Business stability is gone, and competition is worldwide. Focusing is the core of all TOC – solutions. We supply the tools for building the 3 pillars to reach TOC-operational excellence through an effective implementation approach.
The past Since the first applications of the DBR – technique in the 80’s some important additional TOC-related techniques and tools have been developed to support the 5 steps-process that are the result of a regular TOC-implementation. Before that stage, TOC could be perceived as another optimization algorithm like linear programming etc… The first phaseThe…Read More More
The necessary conditions for APS Correct data An APS needs correct data because it tries to optimize the operations by calculating the ‘best’ solution based on the available data. In a regular operational environment different scenarios are compared and ‘the best’ scenario is presented. But some data cannot be accurate like p.ex.: 1. Scrap rates.…Read More More
In discussing the costs incident to various types of operations, the analogy was drawn of the restaurant, which adds a rack of peanuts to the counter, intending to pick up a little additional profit in the usual course of business. However, the accuracy of the analogy is evident when one considers the actual problem faced…Read More More
