BSOP 330 Week 7 Discussion Question 2 JIT in Services
This paperwork of BSOP 330 Week 7 Discussion Question 2 JIT in Services shows the solutions to the following points:
How does JIT practice differ when applying it to services compared to when we use the concept in manufacturing? What advantage, if any, do we get from using JIT in the service sector?
JIT seems to be the central focus of the chapter assigned for this week, so I would like to open this discussion up to include both manufacturing and service implementations of JIT.
Many companies have found out the hard way that trying to implement JIT before they have a good process improvement system in place, like TQM, is more than just a little difficult. Why do you think having an improvement system in place prior to implementing JIT instead of during or after it was implemented, is important?
