The Impact of JIT on the Organization of Production Planning
Eric Schmitz, Belgium, SIG Leader
JIT will have a strong impact on your organization of production planning.
With JIT, a factory should operate in a company similar as the autonomic nervous system in the human body. For example the human body will take care of our heartbeat and our breathing during sleep without a conscious steering of our mind.
Kanban is built to help JIT as an autonomous system. Operators on the floor will judge themselves when what and how to react. No upper or middle management is needed.
As a result staff and management can start working on longer term issues while operators are working autonomous on the daily demand.
Do you have experience how management styles changed due to implementation of JIT and Kanban? Please share your experience in this forum....Register

An Orchestra or Cacophony?
Varadarajan, Consultant, India, Member
JIT works like an orchestra where different instrumentalists know what to do when. Most often the conductor of the orchestra is an OEM.
