Definition of Just-in-time
Kamesh Patel, Analyst, Canada

JIT can be considered as:
1. A way of life
2. A philosophy of continuous improvement
3. A way to achieve manufacturing excellence by continually eliminating waste.

JIT definition
Varadarajan, Consultant, India
JIT is about matching cycle times of work stations. The preceding work stations manage production in such a way that just when the succeeding work station completes its operations, the next part arrives.
The implementation process requires time study and related activities to adjust and optimize the work station cycle times.

Konopi, Student (MBA), South Africa
My JIT definition: A Cost-effective production and delivery of only the necessary quantity of parts at the right quality, at the right time and place, while using a minimum amount of facilities, equipment, materials and human resources.
JIT is dependent on the balance between the supplier’s flexibility and the user’s flexibility.
JIT is accomplished through the application of elements that require total employee involvement and teamwork.
A key philosophy of JIT is simplification.

JIT - Just in Time Definition
Dinesh Deshpande, Analyst, India
J.I.T.- Just in Time is the availability of materials at the right required time, without keeping it as a inventory, and an immediate use of the material, and still maintaining the flow without any down time because of material shortages.
