APICS is the world's leading association for supply chain management, providing education and certification programs.
Eli Goldratt’s book “The Goal” changed the way people look at challenges in general and manufacturing flow in particular. This workshop examines the elements of constraints and demonstrates the power of understanding them and the benefits of breaking them... or not!
Changing thinking from seeing orders and priorities to seeing flows and sequencing, and acting on that knowledge makes a huge difference in manufacturing and service performance. Expect both in this workshop.
This two day workshop will move from underlying theory through applied principles using stand-up lecture and hands on activities to illustrate and solidify understanding of key points.
Major Topics of this Workshop:
- Five Focusing Steps
- THE biggest mistake you can make in managing constraints
- The perfectly balanced plant and how it performs
- Costing and pricing implications for constraint based accounting
- Where what you don’t know IS hurting your business
- Fixed and Variable costing
- The power of market segmentation
