Drum-buffer-rope is the Theory of Constraints production application. DBR is a robust and dependable process that will allow us to produce more, with less inventory, less rework/defects, and better on-time delivery – always.
Buffer management is the second part of this solution. We use buffer management to guide the way in which we tune the motor for peak performance.
Typically, the expected results for production lead time will be reducted around 50% and due-date performance will be increased to over 95%.
