Application of TOC-DBR to Make-To-Order manufacturing contexts: systematic process for bottleneck identification and exploitation based on action research
(Mondragon Unibertsitatea. Goi Eskola Politeknikoa, 2020)
Drum-buffer-rope (DBR) is a key element of Goldratt’s theory of constraints (TOC) in which the launch of production orders into the system is controlled according to the schedule of the system’s bottleneck. The existing ...
Managing Multiple Projects in Uncertain Contexts: A Case Study on the Application of a New Approach Based on the Critical Chain Method
(MDPI AG, 2020)
Uncertainty and change are two features of modern project management. They strongly influence the project management needs to operate in such contexts. This is the case when a complete and accurate definition of the scope ...
Demand Driven MRP – The need to standardise an implementation process
(Universitat Politècnica de València, 2020)
Since the creation of the demand-driven material requirement planning (DDMRP) model, numerous studies have analysed the methodology’s significant impact on different organisations. Several successful cases and research ...
A Strategic Approach for Bottleneck Identification in Make-To-Order Environments: A Drum-Buffer-Rope Action Research Based Case Study
Purpose: This study focused on providing a strategic perspective for the selection and exploitation of bottlenecks in make-to-order production systems, a largely unexplored field in the literature. The researchers developed ...
Modern Project Management Approaches in Uncertainty Environments: A Comparative Study Based on Action Research
Change and high uncertainty levels are the main characteristics of current project contexts. Years ago, the traditional project management faced problems when operating in these environments. Thus, at the end of the 20th ...
Theory of constraints case study in the make to order environment
(Omnia Science, 2021)
Purpose: The theory of constraints (TOC) drum-buffer-rope methodology is appropriate when managing a production plant in complex environments, such as make-to-order (MTO) scenarios. However, some difficulties have been ...
