The TOC Center Inc., a leading provider of
Critical Chain Project Management solutions, announced today that NASA Langley
Research Center has selected it to provide training and implementation support
for the deployment of the TOC Critical Chain solution in NASA.

The TOC Center will install critical chain software, educate and train
NASA personnel, and provide on-going consulting support over their next year
to ensure the successful migration to the critical chain project management
This disciplined project planning, scheduling and execution
solution is being deployed within the Aerospace Systems Concepts and Analysis
Competency (ASCAC) group based at NASA Langley Research Center in Virginia.

“We are honored to be the vendor of choice for the ASCAC at NASA Langley
Research Center,” said Robert Fox, President of The TOC Center, “particularly
in the light of NASA’s reputation for setting extraordinary quality and
expertise requirements for its vendors.”

“The inability to deal with complexity, variability and resource
contention in a multi-project environment is the most significant cause for
projects failing.
Adopting critical chain techniques will allow much improved
project control.
I am also pleased that ASCAC recognized the inherent
benefits independent integrators such as The TOC Center offer.”
Mr. Fox
pioneered the Theory of Constraints principles, which are the basis for the
critical chain methodology, with Dr. Eli Goldratt.
