Sturtevant, WI -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/01/2017 -- Fork truck free initiatives are supported by Theory of Constraints (ToC), according to Topper Industrial. The underlying premise of the Theory of Constraints is that organizations can be measured and controlled by variations on three measures: throughput, operational expense, and inventory. Inventory is all the money that the system has invested in purchasing things which it intends to sell. Operational expense is all the money the system spends in order to turn inventory into throughput. Throughput is the rate at which the system generates money through sales.
Theory of Constraints is based on the premise that the rate of goal achievement by a goal-oriented system is limited by at least one constraint. This can be identified in the excessive, often dangerous overuse of fork trucks on the manufacturing plant floor. Only by increasing flow through the constraint can overall throughput be increased.
A constraint is anything that prevents the system from achieving its goal. An external constraint exists when the system can produce more than the market will bear. If this is the case, then the organization should focus on mechanisms to create more demand for its products or services. Failure of fork trucks, safety hazards caused by fork truck and the operators, are clearly identified as constraints corrected by a rapid adoption of North American Fork Truck Free Initiatives.
