Outline
  • Just-In-Time and Lean Production.
  • Role of inventory.
  • Just-In-Time components.
    • Suppliers.
    • Layout.
    • Scheduling.
    • Quality.
  • Lean Production.
just in time and lean production
Just-in-Time and Lean Production
  • Just-In-Time
    • Management philosophy of continuous problem solving.
    • Internal focus on production scheduling, inventory, layout, quality, suppliers, etc.
    • Produce “just-in-time”, only to meet actual demand.
  • Lean Production
    • Extension of Just-In-Time to eliminate waste (“fat”).
    • External focus on satisfying the customer.
    • Originated in Japan; Popularized by Toyota; now used globally.
why is production difficult
Why is Production Difficult?
  • Demand is uncertain and variable.
  • Same equipment/people are used to make a variety of products, and switching products takes time.
  • Things go wrong:
    • Materials are defective.
    • Deliveries are variable (late).
    • Equipment fails, people make mistakes, etc.
    • Production documents are incorrect.
one solution inventory
One Solution: Inventory
  • Use inventory to:
    • Match supply with varying demand.
    • Allow production of a variety of products on the same equipment.
    • Overcome defective materials, late deliveries, equipment failures, mistakes, etc.
traditional production
“Traditional” Production
  • Forecast demand.
  • Produce in large lots (to reduce expensive setups).
  • PUSH product to customer.
  • Large lot sizes mean:
    • Large work-in-process inventories.
    • Large final product inventories.
    • Slow response to changes and defects.
just in time production
“Just-in-Time” Production
  • Produce in small lots to replenish stock actually sold.
  • Sales PULL product (and parts) through plant.
    • Supplies and components are ‘pulled’ through system to arrive where they are needed when they are needed.
  • Small lot sizes mean:
    • Small work-in-process inventories.
    • Small final product inventories.
    • Quick response to changes and defects.
push versus pull
Push versus Pull
  • Push system: Material is pushed (according to forecasts) downstream (along assembly line, to warehouses, etc.).
  • Pull system: Material is pulled (by sales to customers) downstream (along assembly line, to warehouses, etc.) just as it is needed.
just in time is not easy
Just-In-Time is Not Easy
  • Just-in-time requires identifying and solving problems that create inventory.
    • Reduce setup costs to switch products.
    • Eliminate all waste: Defective materials, late deliveries, equipment failures, mistakes, etc.
types of waste
Types of Waste
  • Overproduction.
  • Waiting.
  • Transportation.
  • Inefficient processing.
  • Inventory.
  • Unnecessary motion.
  • Product defects.
what does just in time do
What Does Just-in-Time Do?
  • Reduces waste and improves quality.
    • Waste = Anything not adding value to the product.
  • Exposes problems caused by variability.
    • Variability in demand, deliveries, materials, equipment, etc.
  • Streamlines production by reducing inventory.
    • Reduces delays and increases throughput.
  • Benefits:
    • Reduced cost and/or increased profit.
    • Faster response to the customer.

inventory
Inventory
  • JIT objective: Eliminate inventory.
    • Hold minimum inventory to keep system running.
  • JIT requires:
    • Small lot sizes.
    • Low setup times.
    • Just-in-time deliveries.
    • Deliveries direct to point of use (not stockroom).

steps to reduce setup time
Steps to Reduce Setup Time
  • Separate setup into preparation (while machine is running) and actual setup (while machine is stopped).
    • Do as much as possible while the machine is running.
  • Move material closer and improve material handling.
  • Standardize and improve tooling.
suppliers
Suppliers
  • JIT objective: Frequent on-time deliveries of small lots of high quality.
  • Buyer and supplier form JIT partnerships to eliminate:
    • Unnecessary activities.
    • In-plant inventory.
    • In-transit inventory.
layout
Layout
  • JIT objective: Reduce movement of people and material.
  • JIT requires:
    • Delivery directly to work areas – not to stockroom.
    • Short distances to ensure on-time deliveries.
    • Little space for inventory.
    • Flexibility: Moveable or changeable machines.
scheduling
Scheduling
  • JIT objective: Simple system to pull product through plant in small lots.
  • JIT requires:
    • Communicating schedules to suppliers.
    • “Level” schedules: production each day equals demand.
    • Freezing part of schedule nearest due date.
    • Small lots.
    • Kanban techniques.
kanban
Kanban
  • Japanese word for card.
    • Authorizes production from downstream operations.
    • ‘Pulls’ material through plant.
  • May be a card, flag, verbal signal etc.
  • Used often with fixed-size containers.
    • Add/remove containers to change production rate.
preventive maintenance pm
Preventive Maintenance (PM)
  • JIT objective: Prevent failure.
    • Cleanliness and simplicity are keys.
    • Maintain equipment so it does not break.
  • JIT requires:
    • Scheduled & daily preventive maintenance.
    • Operator performs preventive maintenance.
    • Operator knows machine and is responsible for product quality.
quality
Quality
  • JIT exposes quality problems by reducing inventory.
  • JIT limits number of defects produced with small lots.
  • JIT requires TQM.
    • Statistical process control.
    • Worker involvement & empowerment.
    • Immediate feedback.
lean production
Lean Production
  • Use JIT to eliminate virtually all inventory.
  • Eliminate all but value-added activities.
  • Build systems to help employees produce a perfect part every time.
  • Reduce space requirements.
  • Develop partnerships with suppliers.
  • Educate suppliers and workers.
  • Enrich jobs.
jit lean production partnerships
JIT/Lean Production Partnerships
  • To achieve frequent deliveries of high quality small-lot quantities:
    • Use few suppliers, each with a larger share of business and longer-term contracts.
      • Helps ensure quality and reliability.
    • Prefer nearby suppliers for reliable scheduling.
      • Example: 4 deliveries each day, 2 hours apart.
    • Suppliers encouraged to extend JIT to their suppliers.
just in time and japan
Just-In-Time and Japan
  • Area of Japan = 144,000 square miles.
    • California = 158,000 square miles
    • Missouri = 70,000 square miles
  • Population of Japan is about 1/2 of USA.
  • Japan is islands (80% mountainous).
  • Land is expensive.
  • Facilities are not far apart.
  • Natural resources are limited.
  • Minimizing waste is crucial.
