In the theory of constraints: A given amount of extra capacity at nonconstraints above the system constraint's capacity, used to protect against statistical fluctuation (breakdowns, late receipts of materials, quality problems, etc.). Protective capacity provides nonconstraints with the ability to catch up to "protect" throughput and due date performance. See: excess capacity, idle capacity, limiting operation, productive capacity, safety capacity.
