"Theory of Restraints"???
I'll assume the reporter misquoted the commanding officer and that he actually said “Theory of Constraints” (ala Goldratt) rather than the quoted “theory of restraints.” Kind of a funny misquoting, if that's the case, in this article about a navy fleet repair center using Lean and Six Sigma.
“FRC uses a process called Theory of Restraints; in every process we do there are constraints that cause things to not come out together, so we have industry partners who come in and give us the latest and greatest techniques and observe and coach our production lines to help us make advances and speed up our production times so we can do more work in less amount of time,” said Cleveland, FRC's commanding officer.
