This paper aims to demonstrate the use of S&T tree, a developed body of knowledge by Theory of Constraints (TOC) practitioners, to facilitate an action research (AR) carried out in an MTO company. Simplified-Drum-Buffer-Rope (S-DBR) pull system mechanism together with Buffer Management(BM)is pre-evaluated as the appropriate production planning and control (PPC) system as an intervention to improve the operating performance of the company. In the process of introducing the proposed PPC, the assumptions made in the original S&T is challenged with new knowledge captured and added in order to meet the contextual requirement of the company.
