Focusing on making money out of the supply chain, this book describes how to successfully manage manufacturing companies in today's global context. The text explores how constraint management, with roots in the Theory of Constraints, produces wealth through the development of manufacturers' strengths. Constraint Management in Manufacturing: Optimising the Global Supply Chain is for both practitioners and researchers alike. It is an instructional tool for anyone teaching operations management and related subjects, and is a valuable guide for those striving to improve the performance of their own companies. The text addresses the increasing demand for manufacturing approaches that apply constraint management and link it to the creative use of new technologies, including the Internet. The text draws on the author's own experiences implementing constraint management within UK manufacturing, using case studies to highlight the key issues that enhance bottom-line performance. It examines the role of new product development, production, distribution, team development, and the strategic focus required to turn the supply chain/revenue chain into a true value stream for any company.
