Throughput versus Cost-Based Product Pricing, Workflow Management and Capacity Investment Decisions

The objective of the Constraint-Based Decision Making (CBDM) Workshop is to help decision-makers understand: 

  • How Constraint-based product pricing decisions provide significantly more to the bottom-line than do Cost-based pricing decisions; 

  • How Dependency and Variability Interactions can be effectively contained yielding faster, more reliable, on-time delivery of projects, products, or services at lower cost; 

  • How Constraint-based analysis of capacity investments or improvements yields significantly better bottom line returns than Cost-based analysis does; 

  • As long as bottom-line performance is not infinite, constraints exist – so we can learn to leverage them or remain limited by them. 

In this 3-hour workshop, you will:

  • Learn how Throughput- (Constraint-) Based Product Pricing Decisions can further improve your bottom-line beyond existing Cost-Based Decisions

  • Explore the key elements of workflow complexity and uncertainty; namely task dependency, shared resources, task variability, and how the interaction between them impacts performance outcomes

  • Examine how repositioning aggregated task level safety time into appropriately positioned and sized Buffers provides for improved workflow prioritization that ensures customer due dates are meet with less intervention

  • Learn how Throughput- (Constraint-) Based Capacity / Improvement Decisions can further improve your bottom-line beyond existing Cost-Based Decisions

  • Understand the importance of making visible the cumulative effects of the interaction of dependency and variability at the task and resource level, and the resulting need for Protective Capacity

  • Discuss the way ahead to transition an organization from Cost-Based to Throughput- (Constraint-) Based Decision Making and Workflow Management.

Who Should Attend
Leaders and leadership teams from all business functions/functional areas of responsibility whose primary business is project-, production-, or inventory-based who want a better understanding of constraint-based decision making and its impact on business performance.
