%X A constraint is a limitation or a restriction that poses a threat to the performance and efficiency of a system. This paper presented a tactical review approach to production constraints modeling. It discussed the theory of constraints (TOC) as a thinking process and continuous improvement strategy to curtail constraints in other to constantly increase the performance and efficiency of a system. It also x-rayed the working process of implementing the TOC concept which consists of five steps called “Process of On-Going Improvement”. Furthermore, it talked about constraints programming and constraints-based models which were explained to some details. Finally, production constraints model formulation procedures for linear programming and non-linear programming scenarios were extensively discussed with reference to published literature as instances of production constraints modeling were also cited.
