Since the early 1980s, the diffusion of Just-In-Time (JIT) manufacturing from Japanese manufacturers to U.S. manufacturers has progressed at an accelerated rate. At this stage of the diffusion process, JIT implementations are more common and more advanced in large U.S. manufacturers than in small; consequently, U.S. businessmen's understanding of issues associated with JIT implementations in large manufacturers is more developed than that of small manufacturers. When small manufacturers… 
Barriers for successful implementation of JIT: a manufacturer perspective
Many manufacturing firms adopted just-in-time (JIT) concepts for more than three decades to enhance competitive strength through cost reduction, on time-in full delivery, lead time reduction etc.
