subordinate - The key word in the third of the five focusing steps: subordinate everything else to the above decision. Subordination is vital to achieve full exploitation of the constraint. Subordination has two major components: 1. all non-constraint resources must be managed to ensure that the constraint always has exactly what it needs when it needs it; and, 2. all non-constraint resources are not allowed to process work beyond what is required for the constraint.

Example: In the case of an internal resource constraint, non-bottleneck resources should ignore such things as local efficiency and run smaller batches in order to ensure that the constraint does not starve.
