Title: Aplicação do Processo de Pensamento da Teoria das Restrições para o Desenvolvimento Sustentável: Uma Proposição Teórica. (Application of Theory of Constraints Process Thinking to sustainable development: A theoretical proposal)
Abstract: This article shows the application of Theory of Constraints Thinking Process to contribute in developing actions that result in sustainability of industries. In order to achieve this objective, some tools from the Theory of Constraints Thinking Process were used,more specifically the Current Reality Tree, the Evaporation Clouds and Future Reality Tree. Undesired effects were identified and structured through the Current Reality Tree (CRT) to identify the underlying causes. The CRT exposed the assumptions that underlie a possible conflict situation and therefore hamper the implementation of potential solutions. Finally, it was built a Future Reality Tree to glipmse the possible ramifications of the solutions suggested. In this sense, the thinking process served to possibility that a reflection of the organization to reduce its environmental impact.
