    - The main principle of JIT is to produce when and what is needed. It also considers the quantity needed.
    - JIT (Just-In-Time) aims at eliminating wastage of labour, time and cost of excessive inventory.
    - JIT is a pull type system. In this system, production originates only when an order is received.
