    Most who try to implement JIT do it in a bubble.  They do not understand that JIT is only one of the pillars built on a firm foundation.  The foundation is the concept of leveling and evening out the demand.  Most do not want to address this, but try to implement JIT anyway & it fails because the company typically drives the erratic demand back to the supplier.  Ultimately, it becomes nothing more than a ‘shift the problem’.

    In the USA JIT stands for ” Just Isn’t There”.
    A phrase heard often.

    Maybe they should look at the new Toyota plant in TX.  Has the major suppliers next door – on the same campus setting.

    Sorry, I’ll have to take your word for that. I don’t have any experience with using a Six Sigma company as a supplier.
    I can tell you that I know many supply chains that are totally hosed by what they are getting from China, Malaysia, …..
