Deterministics is an international chain restaurant consulting firm that has developed a proven continuous improvement process over the past twenty-five years. This approach enables companies to achieve higher levels of performance and profit by improving the predictability of operating environments. Our philosophy is that every work position, process, equipment piece and facility in a restaurant has a capacity that can be measured, and therefore, managed. We say that if you can t measure it, you can t manage it! The beauty of this is, if you measure your operations in capacity terms you truly understand the throughput potential of your brand. At the same time, you learn your physical limitations, so you do not over-promise and under-deliver. Marketing can get customers to your door, but how you manage your throughput determines how many you serve and how many will return. That s why we call this approach Throughput Capacity Management (TCM) .
