Just in Time has been a very popular operation strategy partly because of its success in Japanese industry. JIT is a methodologies used to enhance manufacturers’ competitiveness through inventory and lead time reduction. JIT implementation can involve a series of incremental steps and missteps, before the desired outcome is achieved. How many people in the automobile industry, manufacturing industry, and electrical industry can truly say that they have not heard about JIT? JIT implementation improves performance through lower inventory levels, reduced quality cost and greater customer responsiveness. This paper will examine the roll of a company’s resource. This paper present a literature review on a small manufacturing that altered its resources configuration from a producer- consumer relationship separated by a buffer, to a simultaneity constraint. The result of this paper shows that the removal of the buffer system increased the manufacturing system’s need for mix flexibility and indicates that JIT system is success full, and operating JIT system can lead to many advantages to the case company.


Buffer System, Faster response, Inventory reduction, Just in Time, Producer-Consumer relationship.
