What is Just in Time

The video explains Just in Time (JIT), a manufacturing system designed to produce and deliver what is needed, when it is needed, and in the quantity needed.

The primary goal of JIT is to enhance customer satisfaction by providing high-quality products at the lowest cost and shortest lead time, while also improving internal efficiency.

JIT aims to eliminate the seven wastes and optimize resource use.
The system comprises three key elements:

Takt Time: The rate at which a product should be produced to meet customer demand.

Continuous Flow: Producing and moving one item at a time to prevent stagnation between processes.

Pull System: Providing the next process or customer with only what is needed, based on a demand signal.

By integrating these elements, JIT strives for efficient production and delivery. Further details are available in the video’s description.
