The Goal Movie: How to Apply the Theory of Constraints in Your Business

The Goal Movie: How to Apply the Theory of Constraints in Your Business

The Goal Movie is a video adaptation of the best-selling book The Goal by Dr. Eli Goldratt, a renowned management guru and the founder of the Theory of Constraints (TOC). The movie follows the story of Alex Rogo, a plant manager who is struggling to save his factory from closure. With the help of his mentor Jonah, Alex learns how to identify and eliminate the bottlenecks that are limiting his production capacity and profitability.

The movie is a practical and engaging way to learn the core concepts of TOC, such as the five focusing steps, the drum-buffer-rope method, and the thinking processes. The movie shows how TOC can be applied to any type of business, from manufacturing to service, and how it can help improve quality, customer satisfaction, and bottom-line results.

The Goal Movie is available on DVD from Goldratt Marketing. It is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about TOC and how to implement it in their own organization.TOC is based on the premise that every complex system, including manufacturing processes, consists of multiple linked activities, one of which acts as a constraint upon the entire system (i.e., the constraint activity is the âweakest link in the chainâ).[^1^]

TOC provides a set of tools and techniques to help identify and eliminate the constraint, which can be anything that prevents the system from achieving its goal. The goal of most manufacturing companies is to make a profit, both in the short term and in the long term. TOC helps to achieve that goal by increasing throughput (the rate at which the system generates money through sales), reducing inventory (the money invested in things that are intended to be sold), and reducing operating expense (the money spent to turn inventory into throughput).[^2^]

TOC follows a systematic process called the five focusing steps to optimize the performance of any system. The steps are: [^1^]

  • Identify the system's constraint. This is the activity that limits the system's output or goal achievement.

  • Exploit the system's constraint. This means making the most of the constraint's capacity by eliminating any waste or inefficiency.

  • Subordinate everything else to the system's constraint. This means aligning all other activities to support the constraint and avoid creating excess inventory or idle capacity.

  • Elevate the system's constraint. This means increasing the capacity of the constraint by adding resources, equipment, technology, or any other means.

  • Repeat the process. If the constraint is broken, go back to step 1 and identify the new constraint. If not, go back to step 2 and look for further improvements.

TOC has been successfully applied in various industries and sectors, such as manufacturing, service, healthcare, education, and government. Here are some examples of TOC in action: [^3^] [^4^]

  • Steelo, a UK-based structural steel fabricator, used TOC to reduce its lead times from placing an order to delivery to site to as short as one day. It also adopted 3D printing technology to create complex steel structures that would otherwise be impossible or too costly to produce.

  • Bajaj Electricals, an Indian consumer electrical equipment manufacturer, used TOC to improve its project management and execution capabilities. It increased its throughput by 68%, reduced its inventory by 44%, and improved its on-time delivery performance by 95%.

  • The Boeing Company, a multinational aerospace corporation, used TOC to optimize its production of the 737 aircraft. It reduced its cycle time by 50%, increased its output by 50%, and improved its quality and customer satisfaction.

  • A textile manufacturer in India used TOC to increase its production capacity and profitability. It increased its throughput by 43%, reduced its inventory by 62%, and reduced its operating expense by 10%.

These are just some of the many examples of how TOC can help organizations achieve remarkable results by focusing on their constraints and leveraging their strengths. 0efd9a6b88
