The International Society of Six Sigma Professionals (ISSSP) will host the program as part of its Focused Sessions for the advancement of education, research and implementation of Six Sigma.

TOC identifies the constraints and core conflicts that exist in an enterprise and points to the solution that will best align it with the strategic objectives of the overall system

NOVACES, a premier provider of Lean Six Sigma (LSS) consulting and training services, announced today that it will present the synergistic advantages of using Theory of Constraints (TOC) with Lean Six Sigma (LSS) to better focus efforts to achieve continuous system improvement. The event features contributions from the company's team members Dynamics Research Corporation (DRC) and Avraham Goldratt Institute (AGI) who have been pioneering this breakthrough methodology together.

This integrated approach recognizes that interdependencies among processes must be considered to improve an enterprise's output. While both Lean Six Sigma and TOC have been successfully implemented for some time, their effectiveness in tandem is now being proven. The value that TOC brings to improving an organization's processes is its disciplined manner of identifying what to change, what to change it to and how to achieve the change.

"TOC identifies the constraints and core conflicts that exist in an enterprise and points to the solution that will best align it with the strategic objectives of the overall system," said CEO Bahadir Inozu, Ph.D. of NOVACES. The result of the approach helps to build the tactical plan that will transition an organization.

This combination of methodologies is shown to deliver powerful results in the MRO (Maintenance, Repair, Operations/Overhaul) environment by focusing on the system, identifying constraints and removing waste and defects from the processes. The webinar will take place December 18, 2007 at 10:00 a.m. EST. Attendees are invited to register at
