Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module.

Pre-requisites and Co-requisites


Course Description

In a typical scenario, a person working in an organisation following JIT will need to follow procedures which are specific to JIT such as the controlled flow of material (e.g. the use of kanban, and elimination of waste etc). This will involve the operator in the application of the pull system to their job and the authorisation of product/material flows, in accordance with procedures and their level of authority.
