Lean and JIT Manufacturing
K.krishna Veni
Is there any difference between Lean and JIT Production?

Lean is not JIT
Eric Schmitz, Consultant, Belgium, SIG Leader
JIT is only one of the tools of Lean. Lean itself a total business strategy! So you can have a lean business strategy, operational plan and so on that does not have JIT.

Yes there is a difference even more this are two different things! Lean is a strategy based upon:
1) Elimination of all waste (8points)
2) Continuous improvement
3) Customer service and last but not least respect for people.
JIT is like it says: just in time => is perfectly possible with a lot of stock and unnecessary process steps.
In my opinion JIT is not one of the tools of lean, for me it's also a strategy you choose. But it can help you to make the company more "lean".
