Theory of Constraints

(redirected from Constraints management)
Also found in: Acronyms.
A management philosophy intended to help organisations achieve their goals on an on-going basis. According to the theory, achieving goals is limited by one or a small handful of constraints which, if identified, can be addressed by restructuring the organisation around the constraints using so-called focusing steps

Inozu is a consultant in Lean, Six Sigma, and Constraints Management.
As explained in an earlier issue of Supply, Chain Management Review (see "How Constraints Management Enhances Lean and Six Sigma," January/February 2006), many implementers of lean and/or Six Sigma programs find themselves faced with too many projects that take too much time with too little benefit.
Constraints management looks at the business as chains of dependent events and focuses improvement efforts on the weak links in the chains.
