Abstract

A production line by definition has multiple constraints. Marginal production equipment or marginal processes may go out of production and cause production stops. The knowledge gap which exists while a new product is introduced, an incorrect definition in information systems, such as ERP, or process control can cause production stops as well. Many practices support the prevention and minimization of unplanned production stops, due to line constraints. Using the principles of the Theory of Constraint (Goldratt, The goal: A process of ongoing improvement. North River Press, Great Barrington, MA, 1992): identifying, exploiting and preparing the correct buffer, can diminish the constraint’s effect on production.
