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.
There is a lot to be said for mapping out the processes before tinkering with them, because in that way a lot of incomplete routing, sometimes the one way and sometimes the other, wrongly used processes, and you name it, comes to light. Anyone who has ever experienced an ERP implementation knows many stories about…Read More More
Can the congestion problem be solved with TOC? Traffic jams in Groot Bijgaarde, an accident at 6 o'clock in the morning causes enormous chaos.
