Abstract: This paper examines the implementation of Just-in-Time (JIT) based managerial philosophy in the Indian industries. Specifically, JIT elements, JIT benefits and reasons for slow implementation of JIT in Indian industries are investigated through a survey. The results of this survey support the notion that JIT has potential to increase the organizational performance of Indian industries. However, to achieve this potential, Indian industry must be willing to modify their procedures and operations. Much has been written regarding the positive effect of JIT on performance of production system. But, the negative impact of JIT on workers and production system are not clear. The disadvantages of JIT production system are therefore highlighted here.
