Just in Sequence (JiS) is a further development of the Just-in-Time (JiT) process. In both processes, the preliminary products required for assembly are made available by internal and external suppliers at the right time in the right quality and quantity.
With the JiT process, however, the preliminary products are still stored in interim storage facilities, from which the employees in the assembly department use according to the order of the customer orders. With the JiS process, on the other hand, the preliminary products are delivered directly to the assembly line in the correct sequence at exactly the point in time at which they are to be installed. This speeds up the production process and saves storage costs.
However, the sorting of the delivered parts increases the communication effort. JiS is mainly used in the automotive industry.
