Application of Just In Time (JIT) Manufacturing Concept in Aluminium Foundry Industry in Zimbabwe

Ignatio Madanhire, Lovemore Kagande, Chancellor Chidziva

This research study investigates the use of Just in time (JIT) concept for the aluminium foundry industry. It explores the adaptation of the manufacturing approach to metal foundry, where raw materials are imported in a highly unstable economy. JIT is applied to improve cost effectiveness of operations, quality and to achieve world class benchmarks on all facets of the engineering entity as competitiveness in product delivery is getting to be mandatory for business survival.

Keywords: just in time, foundry, aluminium, cost, effectiveness, world class
