ME 482 - Manufacturing Systems

JIT production systems

JIT must have:

Pull system of production control – Kanban (card) system is often used to implement a pull system. The cards authorize 1) parts production (P-kanban) and 2) parts transport (T-kanban). A P-kanban authorizes an upstream process to produce only the parts that will fill a batch container, no more. A T-kanban authorizes the transport of the batch to a downstream station. These procedures are duplicated in sequence, eliminating much of the paperwork, but uses more labor, although said to promote teamwork among stations.
