Drowning in a sea of parts you don’t need yet? Expanding to meet the needs of a new order only want to increase production and not warehouse space?
If this sounds like you, you’re probably considering switching to a “just in time” (JIT) manufacturing process. When converting to a JIT process, you want a supplier who will work to help meet your needs. You want to receive the parts exactly when you want them rather than being responsible for warehousing. The wide variety of parts and customizations enhance your process. This allows you to be more flexible in your own production and focus on meeting the demands of your customers.
The JIT process was originally designed to cut waste in inventory, but implementation studies have shown it also eliminated inconsistencies and allowed more variability in manufacturing processes, resulting in improved productivity. This means companies can focus on what they do best rather than running a warehouse of parts and supplies.
How you implement JIT practices can vary depending on the specific demands of your company’s process. It’s important that your suppliers are reliable and able to meet the quality and quantity demands correctly, every single time. Without feeling comfortable about this key element, you won’t be able to get the only parts you need, when you need them.
