Abstract

This chapter proposes a framework to serve as a roadmap for Just in time (JIT) implementation in plants, grounded on the practical experience acquired during the implementation of a JIT plant and considering the difficulties and suggestions that emerged during the implementation process. An outlook of the JIT implementation is also included in this chapter. The chapter concludes with some final remarks and recommendations for a smooth introduction and long-lasting JIT operation in an organization.
