To understand the principles of just-in-time manufacturing or JIT for short, you have to dive into the world of queuing theory a little bit. And this little bit could consist of just playing this game, based upon Little's Law.
John D.C. Little is an Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). And he is best known for the law named after him, Little's Law. It is a relatively simple, yet powerful law, relating throughput rate and inventory to throughput or lead time. Little's Law represents a basic law that helps to understand why single- or one-piece flow, coordinated by a pull mechanism in production control is considered to be so important in JIT manufacturing.
