JIT philosophy

Ideal lot size is 1

Balanced production is best

Inventory is wasteful

Eliminate waste

Handle only some

Reduce or eliminate

variability

Conventional wisdom 

Large lots are efficient (keep machines working) 

Faster production is more efficient - scheduling is

necessary 

Inventory is necessary 

Waste occurs 

Materials handling is necessary 

Scheduling is necessary - there is a trade off

between utilisation and performance
