This paper discuss the necessary steps in order to adopt the JIT philosophy into a company or operation, and how it reduces cost and increases quality. It looks at all of the different steps in the production process, and shows how JIT would benefit the overall production of the company's product.

From the Paper:

"Just in time works as a “pull” system and applies to generally every level in a multi-level production system. A “pull” system is actually “the subsequent process that pulls its requirements from the preceding processes in question” (Monden 215). One useful and effective way to implement this “pull” production is a Kanban system. A Kanban is Japanese for the word “card”. It is a system that uses visual communication (usually cards attached to a storage or transportation container) to indicate to a proceeding process that a certain number of units or parts have been used up in a subsequent process. Therefore, the units/parts need to be replaced. The use of a Kanban facilitates the transmission of information among the different processes."
