Robust supply-chain management for the disasters : Based on the product design architectures

Larsson, Rolf LU and Monden, Yasuhiro (2014) In Japanese Management and International Studies 10. p.125-148
Abstract
The Just-in-Time production system, or lean production system, tries to achieve a continuous flow of production, thereby reducing the inventories of materials, works-in- process and finished products. As a result only minimum levels of inventories exist in the various layers of the supply chain. Under this situation, the major earthquake followed by the tsunami on March 11, 2011 in Eastern Japan, affected many parts manufactures when they were hit by these disasters. And since there were only limited buffer inventory due to JIT systems, many major Japanese manufacturing companies suffered from a shutdown of its supply chain.

The Just-in-Time production system, or lean production system, tries to achieve a continuous flow of production, thereby reducing the inventories of materials, works-in- process and finished products. As a result only minimum levels of inventories exist in the various layers of the supply chain. Under this situation, the major earthquake followed by the tsunami on March 11, 2011 in Eastern Japan, affected many parts manufactures when they were hit by these disasters. And since there were only limited buffer inventory due to JIT systems, many major Japanese manufacturing companies suffered from a shutdown of its supply chain.
This leads to the theme of this chapter, how could we reinforce the Just-In-Time production system for the whole supply-chain not to stop their flow of parts due to disasters that stop production at partial locations in the chain? The authors will explore the approach of achieving a continuous flow of production rather than stockpiling the inventory in order to have a robust supply chain.
