—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)
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)
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)
