What Sam said is exactly true, in that what we’re going to tell you is very counterintuitive,” said Connor. “That is, at first it might not make any sense to you. However, I want all of you to listen with an open mind. ” Most of the workers nodded their heads in approval. “We, but mostly you, are going to change the way things are done around here, and we don’t have much time to do it,” said Connor. “So, with that in mind, I’m going to ask Joe to make a brief presentation about something called the Theory of Constraints.

Sam reflected for a moment, and then he said, “It wasn’t just one thing, it was a series of things that were all tied neatly together. The first thing was the whole notion of the existence of a constraint that dictates the throughput of any process. Tied closely to that was the importance of selecting the right performance metrics, and that the primary purpose of these metrics is to motivate the right behaviors. I had just never thought of performance metrics in that vein before. Although, we didn’t get into a deep discussion on manpower efficiency, it’s apparent to me that the only place that efficiency has any meaning at all is in the constraint.

Nope,” said Sam. “Only reducing the time at Step 3 would do it. ” “Yes, Sam, you’re right again,” said Joe. ” “Not sure what you mean by that question, Joe. ” asked Sam. “Sure. ” asked Joe. “Obviously our efficiencies would look good and we’d make more money. ” said Sam. ” Sam was a bit taken back by Joe’s forceful response and immediately asked the question, “Why, Joe? Why wouldn’t we make more money? ” Joe continued, “We’ll talk about efficiencies later, but for now you need to understand that the only thing that happens when you run Step 1 at maximum capacity is that you stack up inventory in front of Steps 2 and 3.
