Interactive Constraint

Constraints that affect the system only through the interaction with the primary constraint; these are periodic constraints that affect the system for brief time periods only.

Theory of Constraints (TOC) Process

1. Identify the systems constraints. 2. Decide how to exploit the constraints. 3. Subordinate everything else to the constraints. 4. Elevate the constraints. 5. If a constraint has been-broken, repeat steps 1 through 4.
