Just-in-time manufacturing has been a reliable way of doing business now for decades. It makes for a more efficient production system and reduces response time from customer to supplier.
That was all well and good until the recent global supply chain disruptions. From government shutdowns to barges blocking major shipping arteries to plant shutdowns due to illness, the modern manufacturing world hasn’t faced this many business challenges since Amazon disrupted the way we all do business.
With raw material supply shortages and the unpredictability of consumer product demand, it might not be the right time for the just-in-time model. More and more companies are taking advantage of buying their raw materials in bulk when the materials are available, instead of risking a supply chain shortage three months down the road.
