The advantages of the TOC (Theory of Constraints) philosophy have been extensively documented in the literature since its introduction during the 80s. At the operational level, TOC is implemented by means of the well-known DBR (Drum-Buffer-Rope) production control system. In a multiproduct manufacturing environment, the performance of DBR is greatly… CONTINUE READING
