Introduction to Production Flow Optimisation

March 28 @ 9:00 am - March 30 @ 3:00 pm


Introduction to Production Flow Optimisation

Course Horizon

This course concentrates on providing the best understanding on all aspects used in Theory of Constraints (TOC) approach starting from the fundamentals up to the parameters used in overall production flow optimisation.

Production flow modelling, optimisation and simulation techniques taught in this course ensure effective examination and analysis of production systems for decision-making. Attendees will also gain valuable knowledge and practical application of business performance improvement tools in order to increase production and improve overall field efficiency.

Maximising production throughput: TOC Methodology

Learning Objectives

By the end of this course, participants shall have:

  • Learnt how to apply the DMAIC cycle in improving, optimising and stabilising business processes and designs
  • Mastered key performance indicators used to measure and analyse operational business performance
  • Comprehended the Theory of Constraints “Thinking Process”, its goal and benefits
  • Understood how to apply the Theory of Constraints method to operational control whilst focussed on profit improvement
