Format: Hardcover
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.

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.

Sorry guys.....but this is a very POORLY written book. It has a tendency to bounce all over the place and leaves the reader wondering what point are they trying to make? It also discusses neanderthal technology. Haven't these guys heard of the "Three Step Method", or "Control Point Theory". I think if I were wanting information about how to "Manufacture at Warp Speed" I would think they should at least know how to get to warp speed. This books doesn't have the answers.......it missed the point.

Helpful, but no real-life examples. Aug. 9 2009
By Konrad Grondek - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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!
Laboratory study at home March 30 2014
By Utkan Uluçay - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
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.
One of the better books on TOC. July 9 2013
By George N. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have read quite a few books on Therory of Constraints and this is one of the better books. Schragenheim and Dettmer do an excellent job.
