Edition/Format:   Print book : English : 2nd edView all editions and formats
Summary:
The first edition of Just in Time provided a philosophy which could revolutionize industry. The concept - making nothing until it is needed and then producing it to the highest level of quality - sounds simple enough, but can cut a company's costs by up to 60 per cent of sales revenue. At the time of this book's original publication, there were many misconceptions as to both the content and purpose of the concept.

   schema:description "Building on the strengths of the first edition, this book was written with a desire to bring the realization of the potential benefits of JIT to a wider audience. It has been influenced by the growing use of the European Excellence Model as a reference for self-evaluation of business performance and consequently includes a new chapter devoted to this area. A further development has been the growing awareness of the value of Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) and its relevance to JIT. Again, additional material is now included to reflect this change."@en ;
