You do not want to produce an excess of product at these upstream stations and have work-in-progress pile up in front of the constraint.
- 80/20 and the Theory of Constraints (TOC):
12Faces’s equivalent of Godzilla meets the Hulk!
Mix the 80/20 Rule promising up to 16x growth and TOC which will liberate your production line.
