In Theory of Constraints, it’s when a step in the process has lower thru-put than preceding steps. The preceding steps cannot operate at full capacity because work-in-progress piles up at the constraining step. Remaining steps cannot operate at full capacity because not enough WIP gets through the constraining step.December 4, 2017 at 6:06 am #202028
