With an emphasis on systems thinking, Building Lean Supply Chains with the Theory of Constraints uniquely integrates TOC with Lean, illustrating how these two philosophies complement and reinforce each other to create the smooth flow of goods and services through the supply chain.

All of these topics are presented in the context of building and managing a lean supply chain to achieve true bottom line results.
