IMPLICATIONS OF THEORY OF RESTRICTIONS V-A-T ANALYSIS ON SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
The supply management is a key issue for the competitiveness of companies. In this sense, this paper aims to identify the impact of the analysis of the VAT Theory of Constraints in the strategic management of materials in light of the Strategic Positioning Matrix Materials (SPMM). From two case studies, we sought to verify: i) classification in which each company is framed within the logic of VAT, and ii) the strategic management of materials from the SPMM approach can be considered similar or not in cases investigated. The main results of the research showed that the VAT analysis if the company S is of type A and in the case of company K is of type V. For the strategic management of materials from SPMM showed that if S belongs to non-critical quadrant, where K belongs to the strategic quadrant. The survey indicated that there is evidence that the VAT analysis tends to impact on materials management and inventory control. The results cannot be generalized since they were derived from the analysis of only two studies and hence this is a limitation of the study. Future studies can analyze quantitatively the results obtained in order to critically analyze the findings highlighted.
