Title: The JIT Prescription for Industrial Revival
Authors: P S Thomas, K Ramachandran
Issue/Year: Jan-1990
Section: Research

In this article, Thomas and Ramachandran present the Eightfold Way of JIT implementation based on a review of ten international cases of this process.

They conclude that the necessary large scale shift to JIT requires the concerted efforts of management, government and management education.
