JIT definition

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.

Definition of Just-in-time

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 supplierís flexibility and the userís flexibility.
JIT is accomplished through the application of elements that require total employee involvement and teamwork.
A key philosophy of JIT is simplification.
