A real business example: Dell Computer CorporationIn this company an order for a customized personal computer that comes in over the internet at 9 am, can be on a delivery truck to the customer by 9 p.m. In addition, Dell’s low cost production system allows it to under price its rivals by 10% to 15%. How does the company’s just in time system deliver lower costs? While machines from Compaq and IBM can languish on dealer shelves for two months Dell does not start ordering components and assembling computers until an order is booked. By ordering right before assembly, Dell figures it s parts, on average, are 60 days newer than those in an IBM or Compaq machine. That can translate into a 6% profit advantage in components alone.
Just-in-time manufacturing system is vulnerable to unexpected disruptions in supply chain. A production line can quickly come to a halt if essential parts are unavailable. Toyota, the developer of JIT, found this out the hard way. One Saturday, a fire at Aisin Seiki Company’s plant stopped the delivery of all break parts to Toyota. By Tuesday, Toyota had to close down all of its Japanese assembly line. By the time the supply of break parts had been restored, Toyota had lost an estimated $15 billion in sales.
This diagram shows four successive runs with learning from each run and improvements applied before the next. Run 1 illustrates the original situation. Run 2 shows what would happen if more changeovers were included. Run 3 shows the impact of the improvements in changeover times that come from doing more of them and building learning into their execution. Run 4 shows how these improvements can get you back to the same production time but now with more flexibility in production capacity. Run N (not illustrated) would have changeovers that take 1.5 minutes (97% reduction) and whole shift time reduced from 420 minutes to 368 minutes a productivity improvement of 12%
Plan to improve your operations first by finding out what things are going wrong (that is identify the problems faced), and come up with ideas for solving these problems.Do changes designed to solve the problems on a small or experimental scale first. This minimises disruption to routine activity while testing whether the changes will work or not.Check whether the small scale or experimental changes are achieving the desired result or not. Also, continuously Check nominated key activities (regardless of any experimentation going on) to ensure that you know what the quality of the output is at all times to identify any new problems when they crop up.Act to implement changes on a larger scale if the experiment is successful. This means making the changes a routine part of your activity.
An example of kaizen's effectiveness is Nissan's experience with welding robots. First introduced in 1973, within a decade their use had cut work time per unit by 60 percent and increased overall production efficiency by 20 percent. These gains were achieved through a series of kaizen programs that searched out improvements that cut time by as little as half a second. The programs, initiated within three to six months of one another, formed a staircase, each step occasioning a brief period of stability before the next rose, inexpensively, a little above it.The logic of kaizen is that breakthroughs result not from massive reorganizations or large-scale investment projects but from the cumulative effects of successive incremental improvements.
An MRP system is intended to simultaneously meet three objectives: Ensure materials are available for production and products are available for delivery to customers. Improve plant operating Efficiency Plan manufacturing activities, delivery schedules and purchasing activities.
A bill of materials (BoM) is a list of the parts or components that are required to build a product. The BoM provides the manufacturer's part number (MPN) and the quantity needed for each component.At its most complex, a BoM is a multi-level document that provides build data for multiple sub-assemblies (products within products) and includes for each item: part number, approved manufacturers list (AML), mechanical characteristics and a whole range of component descriptors.
MRP takes forecasts for end product demand into account. In an environment in which substantial variation of sales are anticipatedMRP has a substantial advantageJIT reduces inventories to a minimum. In addition to reducing inventory cost, there are substantial side benefits, such as improvement in quality and plant efficiency

Advantages Of JIT
1. Investment is reduced

Disadvantages Of JIT
• There is little room for mistakes as minimal stock
is kept for re-working faulty product
• Production is very reliant on suppliers and if
stock is not delivered on time, the whole
production schedule can be delayed
• There is no spare finished product available to
meet unexpected orders, because all product is
made to meet actual orders.
