  Just In Time - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Just In Time (JIT) is an inventory strategy implemented to improve the return on investment of a business by reducing in-process inventory and its associated costs.
The Just in Time philosophy was also applied to other segments of the supply chain in several types of industries.

 Just-in-time compilation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, just-in-time compilation (JIT), also known as dynamic translation, is a technique for improving the performance of bytecode-compiled programming systems, by translating bytecode into native machine code at runtime.
JIT builds upon two earlier ideas in run-time environments: bytecode compilation and dynamic compilation.
In a JIT environment, bytecode compilation is the first step, reducing source code to a portable and optimizable intermediate representation.

Toyota engineers then determined that the remaining critical retooling operation was the time to change the stamping dies used for body parts.
Further, these were usually installed one at a time by a team of experts, so that the line would be down for several weeks.
At the same time, quality of the stampings became controlled by a written recipe, reducing the skill reuqired for the change.

 Just In Time
JIT utilizes a demand pull system because items are produced or ordered only when they are needed (or pulled) by the next stage in the production process.
With JIT all parts with similar operations are produced in the same manufacturing cell, this enables the firm to eliminate waiting and moving times and also reduces the risk of damaged goods.
JIT focuses on "quality is built-in, not inspected-in." In other words, employees are responsible for their own work and thus takes more pride in a job well done.

In a JIT system, underutilized (excess) capacity is used instead of buffer inventories to hedge against problems that may arise.
JIT was well-established in many Japanese factories by the early 1970's.
In its largest sense, JIT is not the same thing as a kanban system, and a kanban system is not required to implement JIT (some companies have instituted a JIT program along with a MRP system), although JIT is required to implement a kanban system and the two concepts are frequently equated with one another.

The Just-in-Time Syllabus (JiTS) is a pedagogical device that enables the Economics instructor to incorporate time-sensitive data, on-line discussions as well as links to freshly-mounted websites into the delivery of most of the undergraduate courses in economics.
The JiTS is a carefully structured but open-sided course plan designed for professor-mediated active learning that is technologically enriched to ensure currency and responsiveness to world events as well as to accommodate and appeal to diverse learning styles.
The JiTS engages the student with the subject matter on distinct cognitive levels, with the goal of increasing the student's sustained engagement in higher-order thinking (analysis, synthesis, evaluation).

 Just in Time Technology
Just in time technology is a notion whose time has come.
Just in case technology is a wasteful, even profligate approach to resource management that threatens to distort school and business budgets, seducing managers into delaying roofing repairs in order to maintain current, trendy digital equipment and networks.
In some quarters this just in time approach will be judged heresy, as the assumption for these folks is that more technology is always better.

two variables: the time period over which one depreciates the one-time costs of building the collection, and the frequency with which the book is used over that depreciation period.
This is a considerable liberty given the quite different time horizons of the two models and the different assumptions made about what is shelved or stored.
If, however, we make the next logical move in the digital environment, where digital copies of material are created, delivered, and paid for just when, and only when, a reader needs them, we will have abandoned the enterprise of shared resources on which the political economy of traditional libraries is built.

As an indication though of the difficulty of implementing JIT in a Western environment when General Motors instituted an Andon for line stoppage workers were simply not prepared to take responsibility for stopping the line.
It is a common misconception that JIT, a Japanese originated concept, is somehow radically different from the classical Western concept of the Economic Order Quantity (EOQ), based as it is on the most economic level of stock.
It will be expensive in terms of management time and effort, both in terms of the initial implementation and in terms of the continuing effort required to run the system over time.

A good example would be a car manufacturer that operates with very low inventory levels, relying on their supply chain to deliver the parts they need to build cars.
The parts needed to manufacture the cars do not arrive before nor after they are needed, rather they arrive just as they are needed.
This inventory supply system represents a shift away from the older "just in case" strategy where producers carried large inventories in case higher demand had to be met.

In the Java programming language and environment, a just-in-time (JIT) compiler is a program that turns Java bytecode (a program that contains instructions that must be interpreted) into instructions that can be sent directly to the processor.
Once the code has been (re-)compiled by the JIT compiler, it will usually run more quickly in the computer.
Sun Microsystems suggests that it's usually faster to select the JIT compiler option, especially if the method executable is repeatedly reused.

In a bytecode-compiled system such as Perl, GNU CLISP, or early versions of Java, source code is translated to an intermediate representation known as bytecode.
In fact, it uses two: a "client" compiler which emphasizes fast compilation speed for applications that will be short-lived, and a "server" compiler which emphasizes highly optimized code for applications that will be long-lived.
