JUST IN TIME PRODUCTION SYSTEM-I

We have progressed our discussion on Lean Production Systems and Just In Time Systems and we will now focus our attention upon Lean Systems in Services, Operational Benefits associated with JIT. We will also note some of the common Implementation Issues along which the Organizational face while implementing JIT. We also need to know what single Kanban System is and solve some examples.

Characteristics of Lean Systems: Just-in-Time

Continuous Improvement with the help of Lean Systems is possible if Operations Managers are able to focus on some of the common characteristics of Lean Systems, which include:

  1. Pull method of materials flow
  2. Consistently high quality
  3. Small lot sizes
  4. Uniform workstation loads
  5. Standardized components and work methods
  6. Close supplier ties
  7. Flexible workforce
  8. Line flows
  9. Maintenance
  10. Automated production
  11. Preventive maintenance
