Lean and JIT Manufacturing

Is there any difference between Lean and JIT Production?


Eric Schmitz

Lean is not JIT

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.

Lean and JIT Manufacturing

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".
