Demand-Focused Approaches to Control WIP

One of the biggest advantages of the demand-focused approaches is the speed at which you can execute them.

Notes

Demand-focused approaches to control WIP:

  1. Block All Demand when WIP Reaches Its Upper Limit.
  2. When WIP Is High, Purge Low-Value Projects.
  3. Control WIP by Shedding Requirements.
  4. Control WIP by Relaxing the Targets for a Unit Cost at Production.

One of the biggest advantages of the demand-focused approaches is the speed at which you can execute them. In contrast, supply-focused approaches, which reduce WIP by adding capacity to queue, often have longer response times.
