The goal of every organization is to make the profit. The throughput accounting help us in selecting proper product mix based on market demand. In this research paper shows that the development of various forms of throughput accounting (TA) inspired by Goldratt's Theory of Constraints. I discussed the potential of TA to change accounting practices, and evidence of change in Indian Power loom textile enterprises. I concluded that transformational (paradigmatic) change is most likely in companies in extreme circumstances: elsewhere TA is more likely to be adopted pragmatically in a portfolio of different accounting techniques.
