I recommend this book for Managers and any team member in a manufacturing environment.
The author tells a story of the difficulties experienced by a Plant Manager facing a potential closing of his plant. This approach makes this book very useful for all levels of staff to read and to get an understanding of 3 main concepts:
- Throughput (total cycle through to Sales)
- Operational Expense
Those concepts and relative roles in a plant are thoroughly explained. Mr. Goldblatt's also explains his Theory of Constraints and how to consider bottlenecks.
Good book and a very easy read.
