Improve your business significantly with Bottleneck Analysis – June, Auckland
June 10 @ 9:00 am - June 11 @ 5:00 pm
About the event
This two-day workshop introduces the Theory of Constraints (TOC) concepts to attendees to give them a strong grasp of its application and potential.
Covering TOC for operations, project management, logistics and making financial decisions, this workshop is enhanced through practical case studies, and design templates for practical application.
After the workshop, we’ll also offer attendees the support to implement TOC concepts into their organisation via our trained HERA facilitators.
This workshop demonstrates how TOC can lift productivity through systems thinking – so you can significantly improve delivery time, production lead time, cost, quality and excellence.
TOC is a systems approach for the fabrication, construction, manufacturing, asset management and maintenance industries. It challenges some of the root beliefs that drives current measures and behaviours and offers powerful alternatives to existing methods.
It’ll demonstrate why and how it’s possible for the same factory, infrastructure, people and equipment to produce at least 20% more by doing things differently. Ultimately, attendees will be challenged to change the way they think, plan, measure and execute their operations. The physical work will be the same, but the way it is streamlined will be different.
Significant improvements have been demonstrated around the world – and this shift and trend is growing rapidly. If you’re searching for significant value add achieved with far less stress and pressure for all – then this course is for you!

Arrie van Niekerk | Tavanec CEO
I have over 25 years’ experience with the application of the TOC Production Flow approach. My company has successfully applied it into more than 100 operations in many parts of the world, delivering remarkable results.
My expertise lies in finding unique solutions for production flow lines in manufacturing, fabrication, construction, asset management and maintenance – covering a range of activities related to iron and steel making, as well as iron ore, coal and other raw material mines.
Holding a B Eng Hons (Metallurgy) from the University of Pretoria I’ve been the Head of the Welding Research Facility for ISCOR Ltd rising to General Manager of Research and Development, and Works Manager of Iscor Refractories during my time there. Here I was able to implement TOC to reduce production lead time from 22 weeks with 60% on time performance to six weeks lead time with 92% on time performance over a nine month period.
Companies I’ve worked with as a specialist facilitator of TOC include Goldfields, Exxaro, Kumba Iron ore, Anglo American, Norilsk SA, Metorex, Kazakhmys, De Beers, Anglo Platinum, Avmin, Implats, Lonmin, Teal Exploration & Mining, Lonmin, Glencore.
“Our work has been valuable to 3M, AEL, Ampaglas, Anglo American, Arcellor Mittal, BLSA, De Beers, Exxaro, Goldfields, Implats, Kazakhmys, Kumba Iron Ore, Lonmin, Pharma Natura, Intercare and many other companies. Some have experienced up to 40% improvement in output within a matter of months.
