Origins/History[edit]

This article is both interesting and applicable, yet it lacks a Origins/History/(whatever) section to explain JIT's origins and history. Instead, for example, more than halfway through the article, someone named "Ohno" is suddenly but casually mentioned (and without a link), and yet, he seems to be the "father" of the JIT strategy — at least the formalized strategy as we know it. So, I recommend mentioning his full name in its first instance here along with a link to his article in Wikipedia, and hopefully, this can happen at the beginning of the article in an Origins or History section.

JIT starts with Kiichiro Toyoda (http://www.toyota-global.com/company/vision_philosophy/toyota_production_system/origin_of_the_toyota_production_system.html) with Taiichi Ohno figuring out how to implement it with kanban. Misleading to suggest that Toyota adopted it so much as invent it. Jason Yip (talk) 22:08, 5 May 2015 (UTC)

A few grammar improvements[edit]

Greetings! I restored some of the older phrasing in the article[1], but my edit got reverted[2] per "Re-entered material that somewhat had (by mistake?) removed." I must have been a bit unclear with my edit, sorry for that, so let me try to explain it in short and brief:

  1. The new wording, "JIT/TPS implementations soon followed, as documented in many case-study articles from the 1980s and beyond.", was a bit bizarre so I restored the old wording, "JIT/TPS implementations may be found in many case-study articles from the 1980s and beyond.", which is clear and simple IMHO.

I hope this helps to explain my edit, Shonzey! Cheers! Jayaguru-Shishya (talk) 17:23, 17 May 2015 (UTC)

Just-in-Time ManufacturingJust-in-time manufacturing – Please place your rationale for the proposed move here. Tony (talk) 10:43, 18 October 2015 (UTC)

It's downcased in the article text, correctly.

Per WP:MOSCAPS ("Wikipedia avoids unnecessary capitalization") and WP:TITLE, this is a generic, common term, not a propriety or commercial term, so the article title should be downcased. In addition, WP:MOSCAPS says that a compound item should not be upcased just because it is abbreviated with caps. Lowercase will match the formatting of related article titles.

The above discussion is preserved as an archive of a requested move. Please do not modify it. Subsequent comments should be made in a new section on this talk page or in a move review. No further edits should be made to this section.

Problems with the lede[edit]

There are a couple of problems with the lede in the current article. First of all, the lede should "summarize the body of the article" (WP:LEDE). At the moment, the lede says that

... JIT migrated to Western industry in the 1980s, where its features were put into effect in many manufacturing companies—as is attested to in several books

and

... and compendia of case studies and articles from the 1980s.

However, neither of these passages are supported by the body of the article. Second, the first passage has 5 sources in its support; the second one 4 sources. This constitutes an obvious WP:OVERCITE problem:

... "citation overkill" ... can lead to examples such as "Garphism is the study[1][2][3][4][5] of ...

I think just one source should be enough to verify such short passages, although none of the given sources is freely accessible. I am in favor of deleting the material as it does not appear in the body of the article; the right way to go would be to first introduce the material in the body, and only after that include it into the lede.
