Not sure if this post will be welcome here, conscious it may come across I’m blowing my own trumpet. If so, let me know and I will delete it promptly.
I came across the term “Theory of Constraints” while reading the book “An introduction to Cybernetics” (published 1956). Written by professor William Ross Ashby.
I put together some thoughts in an article I figured I could share with you all:
The reason I’m sharing here is because I was really fascinated with the idea that some earlier cybernetics theorist established some principles that Goldratt (unconsciously or not) used in order to develop his own method. At any rate, I hope that by sharing this I can contribute to expand the knowledge of those of you who may be interested on this subject.
Anyway, I hope it is of your interest.
