Great demonstration how bottleneck affects the flow. Arrie van Niekerk is using three 1.5l bottles to show how to improve the flow. Three scenarios are given:
Main learning can be summarized as:
The Theory of Constraints is not a process of debottlenecking of operation, it is a process of increasing the flow through the bottleneck.
