• Do you know where your business' bottleneck is?
  • Does everyone in the business know and agree?

Proactive constraint management improves throughput and reduces costs at the same time

It has been a long time since Eliyahu Goldratt formally defined the Theory of Constraint (TOC). It is well-proven and yet its application in business is at best sporadic.
Once the initial constraint analysis has been conducted we work with you to develop a strategy, which will enable your team to proactively manage the bottleneck, while simultaneously reducing the costs in the non-bottleneck processes. And guess what: once again a large portion of such an intervention is a Change Management effort...


Example of Our Work

Mathematical Business Process Modelling

Project: UG Gold Mine Northern Territory, Australia - Business review, innovative mathematical modelling applied to the Value Chain Model (VCM) to identify the site’s primary operating constraint ('bottleneck') beyond doubt. Then, using a mathematically-based Value Driver Tree (VDT), high impact business opportunities ('levers') were clearly identified and sensitivity analysed. The business later pursued these via an implementation project.

Outcomes: (NPV = $18M at a $1.25M investment).

Client Testimonial

They did some good work in a professional way for the Geology Dept. at our underground gold mine in helping us setup a system to effectively and efficiently manage our bottlenecks by eliminating them and eventually passing them on to the next section in the mine planning process who regretfully did not use the expertise that Mark and his team offered.- Ettienne DuPlessis, Manager, Geology, Barrick Gold, http://www.barrick.com/
