Many research has shown that approximately 70% of every medium to large scale industries have some type of quality improvement (QI) program.

The main aim of this paper is to elaborate the value of using the Theory of Constraints (TOC), so that a result-oriented QI program can be achieved with a better bottom-line impact, which will be better than the traditional cost based selection process.
