By stopping the critical path from shifting, Realization's software creates an environment where management decisions have credibility - they are based on reliable information, and can be followed through in execution. Software also simplifies decision-making in an inherently complex environment: Critical chain and pipeline constraints are the factors that limit throughput, thus providing a good basis for planning. Buffer signals not only provide advance warning of potential delays, but also highlight areas on which to focus to get schedules back on track. Monitoring consumption of buffers over time can highlight the areas where local improvements will have the most impact on system performance.
