The positive impact of just‐in‐time (JIT) programmes on production performance is well documented. JIT programmes consist of a number of different elements including change‐over reduction, kanban methods, and preventive maintenance programmes. Some researchers have proposed lists of elements they believe are critical to JIT success. However, there is a lack of consensus among researchers as to which items should be included in the list of critical elements. Reports research, consisting of a survey of manufacturers known to be active in JIT exploration, and an in‐depth case study to improve the understanding of the critical components in JIT programmes. Results from the survey were compared with existing research to determine better the elements critical to JIT success.
