Great explanation of the theory of constraints and operations management. It's a business classic- first published in 1984 - but still relevant as it gets at the fundamentals. I almost removed a star for trying to create a fictional story to tell the book in that was badly told/edited. Did we rea...

The best process improvement novel I've seen, this classic work explains the all-important Theory of Constraints through real life examples and a surprisingly good story. Most books of this nature are exceptionally unrealistic, but this one manages to keep the reader engaged, which is key for an...

Herbie oh Herbie the bottleneck
I was forced to read this book for a business school course in operations management. I'll admit it was better than reading a 270 page textbook, but not by much. This "novel" by Eliyahu Goldratt is a poorly written and disguised book meant to teach all little first...

Goldratt introduces the Theory of Constraints via this entertaining novel. I think this book is excellent if you are new to Operations. And I think the approach of telling a story rather reading a traditional text book is a good format.
It demonstrates why many traditional measurements and common...

(4.5) more interested in application to project development (vs repeatable manufacturing).
I like the approach of 'discovering' the principles behind theory of constraints and how to optimize throughput through a repeatable manufacturing process. Seems quite practical and valuable in just that app...

I did a bad thing and didn't realize that this was a library book that was supposed to be sent along to them six months ago...so I read it in a weekend and dropped it off on Monday.
It's a good example tale of a problematic plant and how the manager turned it around using what was then different m...
