	%X Theory of Constraints has been emerging as an
important tool for optimization of manufacturing/service systems.
Goldratt in his first book “ The Goal " gave the introduction on
Theory of Constraints and its applications in a factory scenario. A
large number of production managers around the globe read this book
but only a few could implement it in their plants because the book did
not explain the steps to implement TOC in the factory. To overcome
these limitations, Goldratt wrote this book to explain TOC, DBR and
the method to implement it. In this paper, an attempt has been made
to summarize the salient features of TOC and DBR listed in the book
and the correct approach to implement TOC in a factory setting. The
simulator available along with the book was actually used by the
authors and the claim of Goldratt regarding the use of DBR and
Buffer management to ease the work of production managers was
tested and was found to be correct.
