starvation - - In TOC, the condition of the constraint being idle due to lack of material to process.

Usage: In traditional manufacturing, starvation applies to all work centers; in contrast, in a drum-buffer-rope system the focus is on preventing starvation at the constraint because starvation at the

constraint causes throughput loss. The constraint is protected against starvation by a buffer between the constraint and upstream work centers. Three sources of lost throughput in a drum-buffer-rope system are: starvation, blockage, and breakage of the constraint.
