When the theory of constraints (TOC) supply chain replenishment system (TOC-SCRS) is deployed in a plant or a central warehouse, replenishment frequency (RF) becomes one of the important decision parameters and depends on the sales or replenishment quantity (RQ) in the plant. The higher RF is preferred by TOC for the low inventory and the fast response to(More)
—The theory of constraints (TOC) supply chain replenishment system (TOC-SCRS) is an effective solution for coping with conflicts during the management of supply chain inventories. When it is deployed in a plant or a central warehouse with capacity constraints, TOC-SCRS encounters a problem comprised of 2 parts: first, how to establish a sound setup(More)
The TOC Supply Chain Replenishment System (TOC-SCRS) is a replenishment method of the TOC supply chain solution and now being implemented by a growing number of companies. The performance reported by the implemented companies includes reduction of inventory level, lead-time and transportation costs and increasing forecast accuracy and customer service(More)
The Drum-Buffer-Rope (DBR) method is the production application of Theory of Constraints (TOC), a global managerial methodology that helps the manager to concentrate on the most critical issues. Three management phases, i.e., planning (scheduling) phase, executing phase and control phase, are required to implement the DBR on a manufacturing plant. Although(More)
An effective inventory replenishment method implemented in the supply chain is one of the key success factors to achieve low inventory while maintaining high customer delivery performance. The Theory of Constraints (TOC) Supply Chain Replenishment System (TOC-SCRS) is one of the solutions to get this improvement in a multi-echelon supply chain. The TOC-SCRS(More)
The theory of constraints (TOC) supply chain replenishment system (TOC-SCRS) is one of the effective inventory replenishment methods. When it is deployed in a plant or a central warehouse with capacity constraints (CC), TOC-SCRS faces a conflict problem between setup frequency (SF) and production quantity (PQ). This paper presents a novel approach to solve(More)
