Hi all

I'm looking for studies/literature that support the claim, that if you absolutely have to produce to storage, you have to place the bottleneck at the beginning of the process to manipulate a pull-production.

Long story short:

I'm working in the food industry, and at my plant, we HAVE TO process surplus raw materials in order to maintain and keep value-matter. Therefore, we are often forced to produce to storage. A consequence of this, is that we very often have at push-production. I learned some years ago, that if you absolutely have to produce to storage, you need to place the bottleneck as early in the process as possible.

Is there any studies or literature to support this? Any literature that focusses on pull in general terms would also be great.

I need this for at presentation regarding a proposed future state.

This is also a great read regarding pull and flow principles. The book keeps you engaged from the first page to the last; very well constructed.
