1996). Even if JIT adoption and diffusion was in its infancy at that time, some interesting findings concerning performance and improvements emerged from the survey. Now, after several empirical studies, we know that the time span between intervention and its results is quite long. JIT or lean approaches and techniques require several changes in the sociotechnical system and the path towards stable improvements is long and complex. The findings found by Gianluca and colleagues reflect this. There are a few positive performance improvement indicators among JIT adopters, namely mix flexibility and WIP turnover (with significant differences compared to non-adopters).
