Just-in-Time Schedules for the Small Make-To-Order Shop In order to use Just-In-Time production methods in a small, Make-To-Order environment it is necessary to achieve as balanced a workload as possible. This paper gives an algorithm to determine a production schedule which balances the workload in a situation with unpredictable demand.   
Just-in-Time Under Fire Though increasing usage of JIT techniques is reported, academics as well as practitioners caveat the increasing popularity of JIT philosophy. They suggest that pure JIT is appropriate only for limited economic environments, that it is ineffective in some organizational cultures, that it is unattainable by many suppliers, and that, in practice, it does not reduce global costs.
