Title: Development of a predictive tool from a study of just in time programs within a manufacturing plant
Author: Bernier, Richard
Abstract: This study develops a predictive tool from a study of different Just-in-Time (JIT) programs within a manufacturing plant, with the aim of being able to predict savings and costs of the next series of JIT programs targeted for future implementation. During the analysis of the original JIT programs, savings were discovered to be greater than anticipated and in areas that were not anticipated. These savings could be related to newer programs. The original thought was to have a limited amount of material on the production floor and none in the warehouse, but other savings were discovered. The cost details of these programs project even greater savings than anticipated. This paper analyzes the existing programs and uses the analysis as the basis for recommendations for moving into more JIT programs for additional future savings.
