Constraint analysis along the value chain
Constraint Analysis - Starting Points
The starting point of the constraint analysis is always a significant and subjectively perceived, or better yet, an objectively measured problem. Some examples are:
The Service Level is lower than the targeted service level of 95%.
Inventory turn rates are too low or there is too much inventory on items with high inventory ranges.
The lead times of in-house production are higher than required.
The service level of suppliers is too low. The resulting security mechanisms, e.g. safety margins, increase costs.
BOTTLENECK AND MISSING PARTS
Daily shopfloor meetings to prioritize production orders as well as missing parts lists become the leading managing tool.
The quality of manufactured parts has declined, scrap rates and costs are increasing and the ability to plan is decreasing.
