Just in Time. 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.
A philosophy of manufacturing based on planned elimination of all waste and continuous improvement of productivity. It encompasses the successful execution of all manufacturing activities required to produce a final product.
Just In Time. A manufacturing technique based on a pull system such as kanban. Terms Glossary Definition
Just In Time A production system to make what the customer needs when the customer needs it in the quantity the customer needs, using minimal resources of manpower, material, and machinery. The three elements to making Just-in-Time possible are Takt time, Flow production, and the Pull system.
Acronym for "Just-in-Time."
Refers to Just-in-Time inventory management.
Just-in-Time. An approach to manufacturing management, attributed originally to Toyota, aimed at the total elimination of waste. Applies to both time and materials, as well as avoiding high inventories.
Just-in-time inventory. An inventory system model based on the idea that demand and supply channels can be coordinated to the point that desired items arrive just in time for use, thereby significantly reducing inventory levels.
Delivery of a product or service and the information concerning that product or service at a place and time as requested by the customer.
"Just In Time compiler," which takes intermediate language as input and generates native code, ready to run, in memory. It also produces information needed by the built-in code manager.
The abbreviation for "just in time," which is a way to minimize warehousing costs by having cargo shipped to arrive just in time for its use. This inventory control method depends on extremely reliable transportation.
Just In Time, a process of getting parts to a customer within a specific time frame that they would use them on their manufacturing line. Manufacturing to shipping of parts is prescheduled to meet deadlines that can be a close as one day and was developed to reduce the space needed and cost of storing parts to be used on an assembly line.
'just in time' meaning the delivery of materials/components to the manufacturing area only as they are needed
Just in Time Contract
(Just-In-Time-Delivery) ~ A method of inventory control where products are delivered to stores or assembly lines only when needed to minimize the high cost of maintaining local inventory and warehousing. The effects on freight demand are to; increase the number of individual shipments, decrease their length of haul and costs, and increase the reliability of on-time delivery.
Focuses on the systematic reduction of waste and inefficiencies in operations to improve overall performance. The end result is the delivery of products at just the right place, in just the right quantity, and at just the right time.
Just-in-Time is an approach to manufacturing that stresses the benefits inherent in a system, where material is brought to the work site only when it is needed. To achieve this goal, each operation must be synchronized with those subsequent to it.
The concept of reducing inventories by working closely with suppliers to coordinate delivery of materials just before their use in the manufacturing process.
Acronymn for 'Just-In-Time'.
an acronym (Just In Time) â€“ the production control philosophy based on the concept: produce the necessary units, in the necessary quantities, at the necessary time.
Minimization of inventory by supplying material and components to the production line directly before placement into the product.
Just-in-time, a manufacturing philosophy of providing parts exactly when a customer needs them, hence reducing inventories and improving flexibility
Stands for Just in Time. Just in time is the cornerstone philosophy of Lean Manufacturing and MRP. Using the just-in-time philosophy, raw materials arrive no earlier than they are required to reduce costs and inefficiencies associated with large inventory.
Abbreviation for "just in time." In education, just-in-time instruction is available at the time a learner needs it in order to perform a task, rather than only at the time a provider wants to make it available.
See just in time.
Inventory management in which materials arrive "just in time" for final preparation and shipment. JIT fulfillment optimizes warehouse space, and reduces inventory holding costs, but requires advanced supply chain management (SCM) skills, to ensure that all components necessary to ship the products arrive in warehouse just in time for final kitting, packing, and shipment.
Just in Time”. A term used to describe a system or information that is available for the user at the exact time the user needs it. Learning Object (a.k.a. reusable learning object). a discrete, reusable collection of content and assessment used to present and support a single learning objective. Akin to programming subroutines, the learning object is the controversial core of industry standards for interoperability.
Just In Time, a technique of managing inventory pioneered in Japan, under which materials are delivered by suppliers to a manufacturer as they are needed for production, rather than for storage or inventory.
Just in time processes, typically for production and sometimes logistics, arrange that the supply of parts is delivered just when they are needed in production and not before, avoiding large work-in-process inventories. In logistics, it means that transportation vehicles arrive just when they are needed and not before or later. See also, Pull.
Just In Time. 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.
Just-in-time. To Top
(Just-in-time) Providing what is needed, when it is needed, in the quantity it is needed.
An approach to manufacturing in which each operation is closely synchronized with subsequent operations.
Manufacturing system which depends on frequent, small deliveries of parts and supplies to keep on-site inventory to a minimum.
Short for just-in-time compiler, a code generator that converts Java bytecode into machine language instructions.
Just-in-Time compiler. An alternative to a JVM; instead of interpreting byte code, it compiles it into machine code on the fly.
Abbreviation for "Just in Time." In 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 nor too late.
Just In Time. The procurement, movement / delivery of materials / goods to the right place, and at the right time.
Just In Time. A manufacturing process that produces products just in time to meet orders, not for stock.
Just in Time: stocks and warehousing are kept to a minimum in the supply chain (the needed items come just when needed, not before - or after). This requires more frequent deliveries.
Just in time. A system of managing inventory so that it is purchased or manufactured just before it is used in an attempt to minimise holding costs.
Just-In-Time (voir JAT)
Just-In-Time Compiler. An enhancement to a Java Virtual Machine that automatically converts Java programs into native machine code as the programs run, allowing them to run much faster.
The technique of timing supply orders so that they arrive just prior to depletion of the existing supply in order to save storage space and not tie up capital. An added benefit of JIT is the reduction in waste of supplies left over when a process of product is changed.
Just-in-Time is an approach to manufacturing where each operation is closely synchronized with subsequent operations.
Just in Time. The principle of production and inventory control in which goods arrive when needed for production or use.
