NOVACES Scheduled to Present Jointly with Three Clients at the 2014 TOCICO Conference

NOVACES will make three joint presentations at the 2014 Theory of Constraints International Certification Organization (TOCICO) Conference with the State of Utah, St. Alexius Medical Center and Turkish Airlines Technic.

NOVACES will make the presentaionts at the Theory of Constraints International Certification Organization Conference (TOCICO) conference June 8-11. The presentations are reports of projects conducted at client organizations, which include applications of Theory of Constraints tools including Critical Chain Project Management, Dynamic Replenishment, and Thinking Processes.

TOCICO is a global not-for-profit certifcation organization that unites people who share a passion for win-win holistic thinking and share a vision that this will become the main way to manage organizations. The Theory of Constraints (TOC) provides a set of holistic processes and rules, all based on a systems approach that exploits the inherent simplicity within complex systems through focusing on a few “leverage points” as a way to synchronize the parts to achieve ongoing improvement in the performance of the system as a whole.

The 2014 TOCICO Conference takes place at the Bolger Center in Washington, D.C from June 8-11. NOVACES presentations include the following:

Theory to Practice in a Social Service Environment; presented by Bahadir Inozu of NOVACES LLC and Greg Gardner, Director of Operational Excellence at Utah Governor's Office of Management and Budget

Taming the Chaos in the Annual Capital Budgeting Process with Multi-Project Critical Chain; presented by Hilbert Robinson of NOVACES LLC and St Alexius Medical Center

Implementing Dynamic Replenishment for Higher Availability with Less Inventory: Results from Turkish Airlines Technic; presented by Bahadir Inozu of NOVACES LLC and Turkish Airlines Technic.

When asked about the role NOVACES is playing at the conference, co-founder Bahadir Inozu, Ph.D. said, "the NOVACES team is excited about the opportunity to present the applications of Focused Performance Improvement in Government, Aviation MRO and Hospital Construction & Maintenance industries at the TOCICO conference. The principles of TOC - Theory of Constraints - have been applied to find the leverage points and then Lean and Six Sigma were utilized to very quickly produce the best and most consistent results."

In the Dynamic Replenishment presenation, Dr. Inozu will show the approach that enabled Turkish Airlines Technic to reach 98% service levels with about 40% less inventory.

Dr. Inozu added, "We are especially delighted to work with the Utah State Government's Success Program to boost the quality and efficiency of government services with the goal of delivering ever-increasing value per dollar to the citizens of the state of Utah.”
