After successful completion the student will receive a TOCSA completion Certificate.

We derive the supply rules from the 5 focusing steps and the generic flow rules and then apply them to production, supply chain and projects. In this way, we demonstrate the simplicity and elegance of all the ToC delivery solutions. We emphasise whole system's thinking throughout.

Subsequent courses will focus on one of the applications and the full understanding to implement solutions.

In this course participants will learn to:

  1. Design a good flow network for a project.
  2. Develop a critical chain schedule.
