What is 'Just in Time' Manufacturing?

'Just in Time' manufacturing is a mindset aimed at customer service orientation, and revolves around the concepts of high motivation and concern for the human wellbeing. Further results of this philosophy are the 'Just in Time' inventory and production systems. In this system, items are produced in terms of ordered units, ie., individual parts are not manufactured, instead, the entire unit is created. Furthermore, vendors also eliminate defective products from their stock. Employees involved in the manufacturing process have the power to pause of the production line, without senior supervision, if any defective product is discovered.
