List of Barriers to Just-in-Time | Barriers to JIT

🔥NEW Though JIT as a theoretical concept seems superb, there are practical barriers in getting this concept to work in reality and get JIT implemented properly. Let's create a complete a list of all those barriers to act as a reference for those wanting to implement JIT in their organizations:
I'll supply 4 barriers to JIT to get started:
1. Integration with Vendors and Suppliers. The vendors and suppliers need to have a good relation to make this concept work. Often cash flow is a barrier here
2. Logistics and External ConditionS. The logistics partner needs to be a strong player. Also external factors like nearness to the customer and similar geographical conditions are relevant here.
3. Culture and Work Environment. This need to be developed to make sure that JIT has to be implemented soundly. Often the old company practices and culture is a big barrier to get JIT implemented.
4. Small Suppliers and Single supplier. As small suppliers do not have an edge of bulk orders, it is very difficult for them to get in line with the JIT concept of their customer. If the vendor is single source, he may display a monopolistic attitude and have his own rules of the game!
Before making a shift to the Just-in-time concept, it is necessary to analyze the situation and the internal strength and capacity of the organization.
