Just-in-time Needs Flexibility
Eric Schmitz, Belgium, SIG Leader
Of course, Just-in-time needs a flexible manufacturing system.
But actually, this flexibility has several aspects. For a proper functioning JIT-system, flexibility is required towards:
* Changes in product demand: the process and the efficiency of the process has to be under control to deal with variable demand.
* Changes in product mix: same as for product demand changes
* Changes in product design: manufacturing equipment, machinery and tools have to be as universal as possible to be able to adapt to small or major changes in the product design.
I am looking forward to your experiences or reactions on flexibility in JIT-Manufacturing....Sign up
