Conventional management accounting systems can encourage behavior that is inconsistent with JIT philosophy, management, accounting must support JIT manufacturing by monitoring, identifying, and communicating to decision makers any delays errors and waste in the system.

Modern management accounting systems are now placing greater emphasis on providing information on suppliers relialibility set up times cycle times, percentage of deliveries that are on time and defect rates

All these measures are critical in supporting JIT manufacturing philosophy.
