This document discusses a case study concerning General Electric's thermocouple manufacturing division and its need to implement a just in time manufacturing environment. Yet, an analysis of the case study also reveals a pervasive lack of strong management that has led to several entrenched systemic faults in its production, inventory, and workforce related functions.

From the Paper:

"General Electric's (GE's) thermocouple manufacturing unit is considering a shift to just-in-time (JIT) manufacturing. After attending an impact conference several of this unit's executives have returned with the intent of configuring the thermocouple manufacturing facility to JIT oriented processes. However, there are numerous impediments that make implementing JIT both daunting and, in fact, impractical under the current circumstances. Chief among these issues are pure inefficiencies and an utter lack of quality in the following areas."
