Just-In-Time Manufacturing

Written by Fmi.Online Friday January 6, 2023
Just in time manufacturing is a manufacturing process that acquires and produces inventory as soon as it is needed or ready to be sold. In other words, manufacturers that use just-in-time processes wait for orders before they manufacture goods. Once the goods are finished, they can be shipped to the customers instead of sitting in storage facilities as excess inventory.

Explanation :

  Just in time manufacturing is a lean business  practice  that is based on the concept of continuous improvement. Basically, companies started to look at the traditional manufacturing process and discovered that producing products before they were ordered tends to increase holding costs. Just in time manufacturing eliminates almost all inventory costs by only producing products when they are ordered. This is often called a demand-pull system because the customer demand pulls the order through the company.

In a nutshell :

  • Continuous improvement. 
  • Eliminating waste. 
  • Good housekeeping - workplace cleanliness and organization.
  • Set-up time reduction - increases flexibility and allows smaller batches.
  • Leveled / mixed production - to smooth the flow of products through the factory.
