JIT in time concept was initiated in Japan making the Toyota as its mater piece. JIT is system whether company starts manufacturing/purchasing once the customer orders the good effectively making zero inventories. In other words, in a JIT environment materials are purchased and produced as and when it is needed. The whole idea is based on the phrase provide the goods just in time as promised when the order is placed by the customer. The opposite of the JIT production is known as JIC (Just in case) system where it produces goods for inventory with the intention of having goods just in case a customer places an immediate order. JIT production system identifies the hidden problems in the value chain and reduces the production waste of the system while increasing the throughout (Sales- Raw Material Cost). Even though the JIT system seems to be interesting and less complicated it requires lot of coordination with supply chain to avoid delays in the production schedule.
The whole concept of the JIT is differentiated from traditional productions systems using push vs. pull systems ofproduction. The push system of production pushes materials to the next stage of the production irrespective of whether time and resources are needed at the next level of production creating lot of inventories at each level of the production flow. The traditional manufacturing organizations adopt push system where they produce for inventory and work in progress. The pull system of production is where the materials are pulled by next level of the production only when is signaled or required by the next stage of production. This drastically reduces the inventory held as it does not keep any work in progress. JIT concept is built based on the concept of pull production which eliminates the total inventory.

The Pages of History

...The Pages Of History by Donald Smith Professor David K. Woodroof English 122 22 June 2011 The Pages of History I have often contemplated about what makes something important enough to be recorded on the pages of history. History is only as accurate as the scribes that laid down its foundation and the editors that decided what was important enough to be retained. People possibly for their brilliance or horrendous acts, inventions or monumental events that may have changed the world are recorded for posterity. Editors have the difficult task of sifting through mountains of historical recordings, selecting the most significant and compiling them accordingly into anthologies or independent volumes. Over the centuries some items have remained while others have faded from history’s pages. In many instances those items that made it past the editor’s pen shall remain among the pages of history for eternity. As an example, if I were to mention Thomas Edison, one would immediately think of the electric light bulb. Others are forever enshrined in history for their brilliant minds: Newton; Galileo; Michelangelo; Da Vinci; or Hitler and the Nazis for their infamous acts. Not limited to people, events such as the discovery of the new world, the Battle of Gettysburg, and the rise and fall of the Roman Empire have made past the editors. Many rightly deserve their places in the annals of recorded time but some have elevated or cemented themselves on history’s pages......

...Associate Program Material Cell Energy Worksheet Answer the following questions: Cellular respiration: What is cellular respiration and what are its three stages? 1) Glycolysis: the cytoplasm 2) Krebs Cycle/The Citric Acid Cycle: mitochondria 3) Electron Transport Chain: the mitochondria What is the role of glycolysis? Include the reactants and the products. Where does it occur? Glycolysis splits the glucose molecule into two pyruvic acid molecules. The Reactants going into the process are Glucose, NAD+ (and ATP to start the reaction). The products are 2 pyruvic acid molecules NADH and a net gain of 2 ATP (2 used 4 produced). This reaction occurs in the cytoplasm and is also considered the first step in both aerobic and anaerobic respiration. What is the role of the citric acid cycle? Include the reactants and the products. Where does it occur? Each of the pyruvic acid molecules will be processed in two separate citric acid cycles. Here the three carbon pyruvic acid molecule is processed to produce ATP and Carbon Dioxide molecules. This Cycle uses ATP to specifically break down the pyruvate into Acetyl Co-A. Once this goes through the cycle, limited ATP as well as more NADH are produced. This happens in the mitochondria when sufficient oxygen is present to form the Carbon Dioxide. What is the role of the electron transport system? Include the reactants and the products. Where does it occur? The role of the......

...The Advantages and Disadvantages of Mass Media Mass media is one of the fastest medium of exchange of information which capture audience attention and interest, for example, television and radio is said to be the best Mass Media. A Mass Media to be effective must be accessible to the target audience and able to hold audience attention and interest. Therefore, this essay will discuss the advantages and disadvantages of Mass Media. The first advantage of mass media is peace and reconciliation. In the Northern Uganda there has been a civil war and FM radios contributed towards bringing peace after 20 years of crisis which was emphasized by both the respondent interviewees and focus groups. One of the focus group participants said that “when we finally see an end to this war, which might come soon, we should not forget the impact of the local radios.” For the past two years the FM stations have been running peace and reconciliation programmes in the northern Uganda to make a group of army surrender and come out of the bush. The rebels were mostly from Lira and other neighboring districts from where they were forcefully abducted or conscripted into rebel ranks. The radio stations, in collaboration with church leaders and peace non-governmental organizations, have been stressing the spirit of reconciliation and forgiveness of the rebels, who have killed, abducted or maimed many people, as well as destroying or looting people’s property. Peace and reconciliation programmes in FM......

...SDS-PAGE also called sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a technique used to separate proteins only by their size. SDS or sodium dodecyl sulfate is a detergent used to denature the proteins; they will unfold and will not have any secondary, tertiary or quaternary structure. Proteins will have a negative charge and they will move down the gel by their molecular weight. PAGE or polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis is a polymer of the neurotoxin acrylamide and a cross-linking agent called bis-acrylamide. Usually APS and TEMED are used as catalysts for the process of cross-linking. There are two different settings of running the polyacrylamide gel, denaturing gel and non-denaturing gel or native gel. Denaturing gel consists of using urea or SDS to denature or unfold proteins and subsequently separate them by their molecular weight. A non-denaturing or native gel is used primarily to analyze the tertiary and quaternary structure of proteins; therefore they do not need to be unfolded. SDS-PAGE is essential in protein analysis in different fields such as forensic, biochemistry, biotechnology, molecular biology and genetics. The SDS-PAGE gel has to be poured in two parts. The first gel that is poured is the resolving gel. This type of gel consists of 3 to 30 % acrylamide thus possessing small pores and a pH of 8.8. The second gel is called the stacking gel and it is poured on top of the resolving gel. Stacking gel has 8 to 12 % acrylamide,......

...Web page A web page or webpage is a document commonly written in HyperText Markup Language (HTML) that is accessible through the Internet or other network using a browser. A web page is accessed by entering a URL address and may contain text, graphics, and hyperlinks to other web pages and files. The page you are reading now is an example of a web page. HTML Developed by Tim Berners-Lee in 1990, HTML is short for HyperText Markup Language. HTML is used to create electronic documents (called pages) that are displayed on the World Wide Web. Each page contains a series of connections to other pages called hyperlinks. Every web page you see on the Internet is written using one version of HTML code or another. Hypertext A method of organizing and accessing text or other data, such as tables, presentational content and images, through the use of hyperlinks. Today, anyone who has been on the Internet is familiar with hypertext as it is in every link they click or tap. Hypertext is a concept that was mentioned in an Atlantic Monthly article in 1945 by Vannevar Bush, who talked about a photo-electric mechanical device called a Memex (short for memory extension) capable of creating and following links between documents on microfiche. This concept was later coined by Ted Nelson in 1965 who worked for and with Andries van Dam at Brown University. Andries, with the help of Ted and other Brown University students, created a Hypertext Editing System (HES). However, the first public......

...writing processes People set about the writing process in many different ways. They require all kinds of different situations in which to feel ‘comfortable’ when writing. Use the following short questionnaire to help you think about your own writing processes. • When you write an important text, do you make more than one draft? • Do you prefer to write on paper or use a computer? Have you ever asked yourself why? • What do you do before you start writing? • How do you start writing? Do you begin at ‘the beginning’ or jump in wherever you have some ideas? Do you think one approach is better than another? • What do you do while you are writing? Do you stop and think?

Larry Page

... Background You always hear stories about people who knew what they wanted to do with their life the second they started living. Larry Page was, and still is, one of those people. Since the tender age of 12, Page knew that one day he would start his own business. Of course, the elements contributing to this decision began at a much younger age than twelve. One would say that the love of inventing things ran in the family. Page's parents, Gloria and Carl Page, were two highly talented and intelligent computer science professors at the University of Michigan. While other six years olds were off playing sports and collecting baseball cards, Page took great interest in dismantling items in his house to "see how it worked". When asked about his childhood, Page commented "(there were) computers and Popular Science magazines everywhere". From this quote, it is quite evident that there was something unusual about Page from a very young age. Page moved on to become the first kid at his school to turn in an assignment from a word processor. One of his first inventions was an inkject printer made entirely from LEGO bricks. As Page grew older, he decided not to put his talent of inventing items to waste, and became interested in the world of business. He earned a Bachelor of Science degree in computer engineering from the University of State Michigan and a Master of Science in computer science from Stanford University. He graduated from both schools with......

...principles that are regularly brought to bear in political and legal discourse about justice in Western democracies. Such an ideal of justice based on equal rights may be necessary, but is probably not sufficient for our purposes, as the victims of violence are, due to that very circumstance, not free agents in the sense of these theories. Looking at other ways of theorising justice (and injustice) In our context, without reconstructing the philosophical foundations of a just society, we may assume that a just society confers rights on individuals, and if we take human rights and children’s rights as defined in international conventions to represent (albeit imperfectly) a consensus on what those rights should be, we can connect to the first set of ethical dilemmas and regardless of critical thought on these theories of justice, issues of individual rights ae evidently significant for professionals, a dilemma between the right of the child to live in his/her family, and the child’s right to be safe from harm in a developmentally beneficial environment.

Making a Page

...There are many different important things to consider when doing a web page. There are certain principles to which a person doing a web page has to follow to be considered a good page. A very important part of a web page is the page layout of the contents that the people will be seeing. The color of the page and the Font selection is very important to keep a web browser to stay in the page. Here are some of the changes that need to be done while making the web page better. First the page layout of the existing page is not a good way to have the page. First thing that needs to be changed is the company’s name. The name should not be put in the middle, because it does not look good there instead it should be on the top left corner of the page. Another thing that should be changed is the employee login. By having the selection there it makes it look really unprofessional and should be changed to be located on the navigational bar with the other selections. The reservation box located on top left corner will have to be moved towards the right side of the page the color for the box will have to be different. The actual color does not look good with the blue background, so it will have to be changed to light blue and the letters in black wish is a relaxing color, because the people that are looking for this web page is looking for a place to relax and have a nice and peaceful time. The color of the button “check rates” also will have to be changed to a different color. This......
