The Goal Report

The Goal Report: Guidelines
This assignment asked for (in about 1,000 words):

Your opinion of what “the goal” is, and a brief description of Goldratt’s measures (T, OE, and I) [~250 words or less]

Identify what you feel are the three most important steps/interventions Alex’s team took to improve the plant. Identify how the steps affect T, I, and OE (if applicable). [Do not include the steps/ongoing process of improvement model][~250 words or less]

Application: discuss how the concepts of the book might be applied to an actual process (e.g., in your firm, division, department, or group; or in a job you have or recently had; or in a company that you have visited). Identify the a) goal, b) how you would measure T, I, and OE in your example, and c) the primary constraints faced.[about 500 words or more]

Finally, propose a solution(s) to break the constraint. [20 points]

 
These guidelines focus on the third point: applying the concepts of TOC to an actual process in your department or organization, or to a process in which you are actively engaged. In writing about applying the book’s principles, be sure to:

Identify the goalof the process/organization
Define (for this process) T, I and OE
Determine the primary constraint(s) in the process
Identify possible changes you would recommend, noting how they “break” the constraint

In total, the ‘application’ section should be about 500 words. Feel free to use bullet points for the definitional elements; you can single-space these if you’d like.
