This course builds on the Fundamentals course that introduced the ToC mindset and Throughput Thinking. 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.

In this course participants will learn to:

  1. Fully understand the generic flow rules.
  2. Understand the dice game transition from local optima to great global performance.
  3. Understand planning execution and feedback rules.
  4. Understand production the ToC way as an application of the rules.
  5. Understand supply chain the ToC way as an application of the rules.
  6. Understand project management the ToC way as an application of the rules.
  7. Understand how to use buffers in execution management as the only priority system.
