    ADB,
    Time for some tough love here…you might want to turn your head…this is gonna sting a little…
    By asking such a general and simplistic question, I dont think you have much experience in these matters.  Which means before you squander an opportunity to make real, effective change in your process, go educate yourself.  I reccommend the suite of lean books from the Lean Institute.  Costs about 300 bucks, but well worth it and should answer most of your questions.  The specifics you dont then understand you can  ask the forum. 
    I tell you this because if you return a less than impressive deliverable (read half-ass), you dimish your ability to market the skill set to management in the future and damage your ability to influence the CAP elements, which are critical to your success.
    Good luck.

    There is the literary angle, but more importantly I felt it necessary to acknowledge my ignorance right up front. 
    And apparently i am often imitated but never duplicated by another ¨village idiot¨ using my screen name.
    This vexes me.  I am terribly vexed.

    You actually had the testicular fortitude to say ¨pretenders¨ while using someone else´s screen name….I am impressed.

    Ok…village idiot, do us both a favor and find another screen name…I keep seeing posts that embarss me with my name on it.  For example, there is no need to capitalize Envy in your last posting here…here, use this as an example:
    ¨I am shamlessly using another person´s screen name because I envy his brillant mind, infinite knowledge of all things sigma, and his ability to pull chicks¨
    ….for example.

    First, your confusion appears to be rampant, as you should  exercise a modicum of creativity and not hijack anothers screen name….I have asked many stupid questions and annoyed the forum experts for quite some time to earn that prestigous handle….TVI es mio primo.
    Now to answer your question…Lean encompasses the ideas of TOC in that all process elements or work flow cells should operate at the rate of demand (takt time).  Bottlenecks, or those elements of the process whose cycle time exceeds takt time are ´´leaned out´¨ by reducing all non-value adding elements (7 deadly wastes) so as to alleviate or add additional capacity.  I believe that TOC will advocate attacking the biggest bottleneck first, while lean will make a distinction in the degree of impact….for example, reducing the cycle time of a cell closer to the point of sale and downstream of your largest bottleneck will improve your overall throughput time and actually be felt by the customer in lead time reductions.   But that my only be my opinion…trust but verify. 
    As for a simple example, read ¨The Goal¨ like everybody else…it explains it throughly.
     
    Sincerely,
    The Village Idiot (TVI)
