About this item

A sequel to the authors' Epiphanized: A Novel on Unifying Theory of Constraints, Lean, and Six Sigma, Second Edition, this volume is meant to be a business novel and places the same characters from that book in two new industries: a commercial helicopter maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility, and a hospital. It applies a combination of three process improvement methodologies (the Theory of Constraints, Lean, and Six Sigma) to these environments to show readers how to find the issue in a system, resolve it, and reduce the amount of time and money required to generate faster results. It expands on two ideas from the first book--the interference diagram/intermediate objectives simplified strategy and the multiple drum-buffer-rope scheduling mechanism--and adds three methodology cycles: which steps to take, how to take them, and what the expected results should be. Nelson is a management consultant and specialist in constraints management and systems analysis, and Sproull is a management consultant and specialist in Theory of Constraints and Lean Six Sigma.
