The Theory of Constraints (TOC) is a Lean Manufacturing methodology conceived by Elijah Goldratt. It is comprised of the five following focus steps:
- Identify the constraint
- Exploit the constraint
- Subordinate and synchronize to the constraint
- Elevate the performance of the constraint
- Repeat the process
This methodology of bottleneck identification and elimination have improved the throughput of companies worldwide.
What do you do when the constraint is Engineering time? CAD and PLM systems have been instrumental in improving productivity, accuracy, quality, and time to market. Is this as good as it gets? Of course not. Autonomous Engineering is the next logic step. Virtually all Engineering organizations spend considerable time on mundane and repeatable tasks, often described as maintenance and documentation. Why aren’t these mundane/repeatable tasks automated? It takes time and no one has the time to do it. An external company that understands the issues and how to automate them is the answer.
Certusoft is the industry leader in providing Autonomous Engineering capabilities based on its CLIK rules language. Several North American truck manufactures are pursing the benefits of Autonomous Engineering with our technology.
