The simulation of JIT manufacturing offers a number of prospective benefits to its users. Unfortunately, a number of pitfalls also await those who utilise the technique without first establishing the proper foundation. A number of benefits obtainable from JIT simulation are proposed, as well as warnings of possible problems. Also presented and discussed are a number of recommendations for avoiding many of these potential problems. Any JIT manufacturing firm should be able to utilise simulation to its benefit provided that its use is carefully implemented.
