Publisher Description

This is an individual chapter of Theory of Constraints Handbook. Drum, buffer, rope is the operations scheduling and control mechanism for the Theory of Constraints. The term originates from the idea that the constraint of the system is like a drum, beating out a speed for the entire system. The buffer is a supply of product developed to avoid the drum from losing work. The rope is a signaling mechanism from the drum to product release to control the entry of product into the store at the proper speed. The literature evaluation covers the application of drum, buffer, rope in a range of environments.
