A strategy that concentrates on making quality products, in the quantity needed, when it is needed. This strategy exposes waste and makes continuous improvement possible.
A production approach widely followed in the automotive industry which views production as a system in which all operations, including the delivery of materials needed for production, occur just at the time needed. This effectively eliminates the need for material stock.
Method which makes it possible to optimize material flows starting from an order to the supplier until the delivery of the product at the customer's in order to minimize stocks and to decrease the wasting. A planning system for manufacturing processes that optimizes availability of material inventories at the manufacturing site to only what, when and how much is necessary.
With this method of inventory control, warehousing is minimal or non-existent. The container is the movable warehouse and must arrive "just-in-time" - not too early, not too late.
In this method of inventory control, warehousing is minimal or non-existent: The container is a "movable" warehouse and must arrive neither too early nor too late
An inventory control system that controls material flow into assembly and manufacturing plants by coordinating demand and supply to the point where desired materials arrive just in time for use. An inventory reduction strategy that feeds production lines with products delivered just in time. Developed by the auto industry, it refers to shipping goods in smaller, more frequent lots.
The procurement, movement / delivery of materials / goods to the right place, and at the right time.
A method of minimizing product and supply inventories by ordering materials as close as possible to the actual time of need. This reduces the cost of maintaining inventories of expensive items, such as newer biotechnology drugs. Precise timing and reliable suppliers are essential for this technique to work effectively.
A manufacturing technique based on a pull system such as kanban. Terms Glossary Definition
Manufacturing what is needed, when it is needed, in the quantity it is needed.
A supply procurement program designed to reduce on-hand inventory by increasing deliveries to units in low units of measure. Owens & Minor is UMMC's JIT Partner.
The principle of production and inventory control that prescribes precise controls for the movement of raw materials, component parts and work-in-progress. Goods are expected to arrive when needed for production rather than arriving prior to need and becoming inventory
("JIT") philosophy in which goods, services, or action s are provided on demand as needed AND without waiting, queuing or storage. [D04851] RUP
The principle of production and inventory control that prescribes precise controls for the movement of raw materials, component parts and work-in-progress. Goods arrive when needed for production for use rather than becoming expensive inventory that occupies costly warehouse space.
A production practice that precisely controls material flow into assembly and manufacturing plants. JIT reduces inventory needs by managing delivery of product exactly where and when it is needed, from multiple suppliers.
A system of managing inventory so that it is purchased or manufactured just before it is used in an attempt to minimise holding costs.
The principle of production and inventory control in which goods arrive when needed for production or use.
The concept of reducing inventories by working closely with suppliers to co-ordinate delivery of materials just before their use in the manufacturing or supply process. Goods arrive when needed (just ...
Just In Time (JIT) is an inventory strategy implemented to improve the return on investment of a business by reducing in-process inventory and its associated costs. The process is driven by a series of signals, or Kanban (Jp. ã‚«ãƒ³ãƒãƒ³ also çœ‹æ¿), that tell production processes to make the next part. Kanban are usually simple visual signals, such as the presence or absence of a part on a shelf.
