ASQ Quality Press, 1 січ. 1997 р. - 378 стор.
Organizations live or die as systems not processes. Their success or failure is a function of how well the different component processes interact with one another. Real quality improvement isn't possible without the knowledge that comes from an understanding of the theory of knowledge, knowledge of variation, an understanding of psychology, and appreciation for systems. Goldratt's Theory of Constraints addresses best-selling author Eli Goldratt's unique approach to dramatically improving corporate performance, found throughout his books, The Goal (North River, 1992) and It's Not Luck (North River, 1994). This book thoroughly explains the theory of constraints, as well as detailing for the reader exactly how to problem solve using TOC.

Сторінка 12 - If a system is performing as well as it can, not more than one of its component parts will be. If all parts are performing as well as they can, the system as a whole will not be. THE SYSTEM OPTIMUM IS NOT THE SUM OF THE LOCAL OPTIMA. Systems are analogous to chains. Each system has a "weakest link" (constraint) that ultimately limits the success of the entire system. Strengthening any link in a chain other than the weakest one does NOTHING to improve the strength of the whole chain.
Сторінка 5 - It is more important to know where you are going than to get there quickly.
