All of the above characterize JIT provider issues.

As a outcome, work-in-process should move prolonged distances between operations. There are a variety of evils with this. At first, relocation of components around the plant leads to unnecessary costs incurrence. Secondly, relocation leads ready time.

All of the JIT techniques for coping with suppliers, format, inventory, and scheduling are used in companies. Scheduling isn’t relevant to effective use of JIT in providers. All of the above are false. Produce in lengthy production runs to reduce the influence of setup prices. 21. B) produce in lengthy production runs to cut back the influence of setup prices.

10. JIT brings about competitive advantage by quicker response to the client regardless of cost. In a JIT system, product inspection adds value by figuring out faulty gadgets. The high quality administration tool called poka-yoke is not related to JIT systems. E) All of the above are attributes of lean operations.
