Just-In-Time Processing


The purpose of this seminar is to provide management, supervision, support personnel, and shop floor employees with the skills necessary to use the tools, techniques, and methods associated with Just-In-Time (JIT) processing. Explanations are provided of how JIT processing contributes to profit and productivity. Each JIT tool, method, and technique is explained in detail, followed by group-based work sessions that assist the students to transfer the classroom lesson to their own manufacturing environment. In some cases, the planning and work associated with JIT processing implementation can be accomplished.
