Interview with Anthony Fouque from Agilea - Expert in Supply Chain Management
During the International TOCICO Conference in Berlin, Germany, from 15 to 19 July, TOC Fashion Academy Tuscany presented illustrations, inspired by the Theory of Constraints (TOC) principles. They are made in order to be used to explain TOC to children in an amusing way.
The global men's fashion supply chain is driven by large brands which dictate styles, materials and prices. Traditional contract manufacturing for these brands operates under price-based competition. In order to break out of this dead end, Richmart, the most modern made-to-measure men's suits factory in Eastern Europe, decided to reconfigure its entire supply chain. The managers undertook a detailed Thinking Process analysis of the supply chain, based on the principles of the Theory of Constraints and decided to move towards a win-win partnership between all parties involved from the wool through fabric, machinery and equipment to sewing factories and fashion consultants to the consumer. The Sales Director of Men's Fashion Group Dean Manev and Martina Martini (Art Director) made a presentation about Made To Measure and Made To Order services during the International TOCICO conference in Berlin, Germany on 19 July.
The core concept of the Theory of Constraints is that every process has a single constraint and because of that the total process throughput can only be improved when the constraint is improved. A constraint is anything that prevents the system from achieving its goal.
