Book Description

28 Sep 2000 The CRC Press Series on Constraints Management (Book 19)
Manufacturing systems don't exist in a vacuum, isolated from the rest of the company, but they are often managed that way. A truly effective, highly competitive manufacturing company integrates its manufacturing, marketing, sales, purchasing, and financial functions into a well-coordinated whole. Manufacturing at Warp Speed: Optimizing Supply Chain Financial Performance explains in detail how to coordinate all these functions to maximize sales revenue while controlling inventory and overhead costs. Ultimately, the effects of applying the new Simplified-Drum-Buffer-Rope (DBR II) introduced by the authors include dramatically faster manufacturing cycle times, shorter order-to-delivery lead times, higher on-time delivery reliability, and better customer satisfaction.

The book gives you everything a typical production professional needs to implement this new DBR approach. A supplemental feature - the Management Interactive Case Study Simulator (MICSS) - is included with the book. Available for download via the CRC Press website, the simulator sets up a virtual company where you can test and practice the processes you learn in the book before implementing them in your organization. The book and software together constitute the complete package for learning how to streamline manufacturing operations.

The first book available on second generation Drum-Buffer-Rope, Manufacturing at Warp Speed: Optimizing Supply Chain Financial Performance describes the simplest, most efficient methods for reducing manufacturing cycle time and increasing the speed of manufacturing yet devised. Fully illustrated, with numerous examples, case studies, and manufacturing scenarios, the book is so easy to read that even the novice can understand it. Correct use of this new method practically assures that your company has the competitive advantage.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 11 Jun 2001
By Kelvyn Youngman - Published on Amazon.com
A terrific for book for those wanting to bridge the gap between reading "The Goal" and putting it into everyday practice. The authors explain the fundamentals of Theory of Constraints and drum-buffer-rope scheduling, and present seductive logic for a new simplified drum-buffer-rope called S-DBR.
Through the use of diagrams called clouds, most people will immediately recognise a host of the day-to-day production problems that they face and the solutions for their removal. There is an important discussion of V, A, and T plant configurations that will help managers to better understand their own plants. The financial, tactical, and strategic implications of TOC are also investigated. Integral to the text is CD-ROM simulation that allows you to run various plants for a significant period of time in order to experience the undesirable effects and their solutions first-hand.
People who are serious about rapidly improving the bottom line performance of their organisations should read this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Read 4 Jun 2001
By daniel p walsh - Published on Amazon.com
The authors have shown us how the the Theory of Constraints can improve your business quickly and effectively. They clearly explain how it operates within existing legacy systems or can be used as the basis for a much improved brand new solution. If you are looking for the definitive reference source that answers those questions you have about TOC in a supply chain solution, then look no longer. "Manufacturing at Warp Speed" is a must read for those investigating leading edge solutions and for the seasoned TOC experts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful, but no real-life examples. 9 Aug 2009
By Konrad Grondek - Published on Amazon.com
Simplified DBR, presented in this book, is suprisingly common-sense idea which I'm going to implement soon in company I work for at the moment. Will it work?

That is what I missed the most in this book - no real-life examples from real-life companies. Another cons' is... simulator which seems to be a substitute of examples of implementations. Furthermore mixing text with explanation of simulator game makes you to skip, but at the same time you don't want to miss anything important. Iritating!

5.0 out of 5 stars Advanced TOC 22 Jan 2005
By Open Mind - Published on Amazon.com
If you want to truly dig into TOC and gain an advanced understanding, this it. Worth its weight in gold.
5.0 out of 5 stars Laboratory study at home 30 Mar 2014
By Utkan Uluçay - Published on Amazon.com
I have read Supply Chain Management at Warp Speed before this book. This book is a more detailed version of the other one with a narrower scope. It was a coincidence with my efforts to implement TOC in my business. I found it very useful.

Part I - it was introducing basics of TOC. A well balanced blend of logical thinking, throughput accounting, 5 principles.

Part II - Traditional DBR. safety stock vs emergency stock, buffer management, generic manufacturing conflicts, a very good example to show the basic calculation and interpretations, comparison with MRP method.

Part III - S-DBR. planned load, buffer management, simulation software practising to test different policy constraints, logical reasoning behind the system, managing excess capacity

Part IV - Effects of Throughput Accounting view on daily decisions, simulation practising of changing policies, comparison with ERP

I liked the simulation study. Yes it took time to understand the software, I have never been confident to run it %100 control but anyway it was a good option to safely and cheaply test main policy biases. It is in English and therefore I could not share the study with my collegaues unfortunately.

This book has accerelated my efforts to transform my business in TOC way.
