Abstract

An understanding of JIT is needed before a successful strategy can be developed. Reading, discussion and evaluation of experience are the starting‐points. A total JIT framework can then be developed and individual elements identified and defined. An integrated socio‐technical approach secures numerous benefits from successful implementation. People are the integrators and facilitators. An implementation analysis technique is proposed with actual results recorded. A pilot installation improves the prospect of success. The text draws on the experience of the writer during the development of JIT at Cummins Engine Company.
