Drum Buffer Rope approach
Drum Buffer Rope is a production management technique from Theory of Constraints (TOC). It helps plan and schedule the production in an organization. Drum is the constraint (step with the lowest throughput) and it sets the pace of the entire process. Buffer is the inventory (or safety stock) that is maintained just before the constraint to ensure consistent production. Rope is the signal generated when the buffer falls below a threshold value. It is a signal for the previous step to replenish the inventory
