Competitive Knowledge for Manufacturing People 

Just In Time Production
==========================================

May 2, 2005

Hi [[firstname]], welcome back. 

When I was working in industry, I was sometimes 
accused of being too driven by my desire to meet goals. 
My wife always said that it was the major contributor 
to my high stress level and chronic headaches. 

In the early days, we unfortunately had not discovered 
the power of self-directed teams. To meet deadlines we 
would get our people in a room, tell them what they 
had to do and then threaten them with a 2x4 till they 
got it done. (Well maybe that's an exaggeration but 
only the 2x4.) 

I hope that none or our readers are in that kind of 
work environment today. If so, you have my sympathy. 
Today, empowerment and team dynamics are the keys to 
Creating a fun environment and getting the job done 
on time.

This all reminds me of a story about a guy who always 
got things done on time. So, let's take another break 
from our day-to-day routine and enjoy another story, 
"My Just In Time Story." 

Have a nice day, keep the faith, and stay connected.

MY JUST IN TIME STORY

This is a story about a person who was the master of 
his time schedule. His name was John Seymour and he 
lived on Long Island in New York. He was married with 
two children. His profession was that of a production 
manager. He was very successful and he attributed 
his success to following finite routines … both at 
home and at work.

Every work day he would wake up at precisely 06:00AM, 
get out of bed and do 15 minutes of stretch exercises, 
take a 5 minute shower, take 5 minutes to brush teeth 
and shave and 8 minutes to get dressed. He repeated 
this exact time table each and every workday. 

He would then go downstairs where his wife had his 
breakfast waiting for him, he would take 16 minutes to 
eat his breakfast, 2 minutes to say his goodbyes and 
then get into his car and drive 14 minutes to where he 
would catch the ferry each and every workday. 

It took him 3 minutes to walk to the ferry and he 
would board it at precisely 07:15AM each and every 
workday.

One morning, John wakes up at 06:40AM (40 minutes late). 
He jumps out of bed, skips his exercises, takes a 
fast shower and shave, jumps into his clothes, runs 
downstairs and grabs a piece of toast as he sprints 
for his car. 

He drives 85 MPH to the ferry parking lot, dumps his 
car and runs like a deer for the ferry and as he 
arrives at the landing, the ferry is already 10 feet 
from the shore. 

He takes a flying leap for the ferry, lands on the 
ferry's deck, slips and falls and then slides across 
the deck crashing into some lounge chairs. 

A guy walks up to him and says "Why did you do that, 
we would have been at the dock in another minute.
