Just-in-Time (JIT) Inventory is a philosophy and approach to inventory management that has gained significant global recognition and adoption. Originating from Japan’s manufacturing industry, JIT focuses on eliminating waste, reducing lead times, and synchronizing production with customer demand. JIT aims to minimize inventory levels by receiving inventory just in time for production or customer delivery. Many organizations worldwide have implemented JIT principles to improve efficiency, reduce inventory holding costs, and enhance overall supply chain performance.
