Unit constraints: Continuously identified

“Spending any effort on initiatives not resolving constraints is a waste of time and money, and has no impact on achieving the goal” (Eli Goldratt)

The delta-t COCKPIT AI Copilot alerts management to a unit in constraint by presenting the deviating from the goal by unit.

Reading from right to left (direction selectable in delta-t COCKPIT) such plans comprise:

  • Critical success factors: The state of constraint resolved (e.g. two constraints to be resolved)
  • Competitors plans: Not just competitors in same industry – but leaders in addressing the constraint we must resolve.
  • Necessary conditions: Results to be achieved to resolve the constraints.
  • Obstacles: To overcome to achieve the necessary conditions.
  • Commitments: Results to be achieved to overcome the obstacles.
