AbstractIn a previous paper in this journal named The TOC-Based Algorithm for Solving Multiple Constraint Resources, Ray considered an integrated heuristic approach named AHP/TOC comprising the analytic hierarchy process (AHP) and theory of constraints (TOC) in a multiple constraints resource product mix problem. This paper gives three typical examples and points out that the proposed approach would not generate the optimal solution. Furthermore, the reasons are analyzed in terms of the ranking approach of product priority using AHP and the adjustment approach of product mix after a new bottleneck has been identified. We clarify the cases under which the AHP/TOC method can and cannot output the optimal solution. Finally, some possible improvements are given.
