Problem statement: Taiwan is located in the tropical ocean areas. The strong typhoon in summer often causes the collapse of electric transmission towers and results in power outages that seriously affect people’s lives and industrial production. Approach: In light of this situation, this study aims to employ project management techniques of Theory of Constraints (TOC) to develop a practical TOC model to quickly repair the towers and restore power supplied system. Results: The actual application had verified that the research model could not only shorten the duration of work but also save the manpower and material expenses. Conclusion: It once again proved the excellent results of reparation operations by applying TOC to project management.
