              JIT in Wal-Mart

 Wal-Mart is known to be one of the best
  supply chain operators of all times
 By investing early and heavily in cutting-
  edge technology to identify and track
 In 1979 Wal-Mart switches to a
  computerized inventory system that tracks
  individual items.
              JIT in Wal-Mart

 Wal-Mart is searching for and supporting
 better technology that promises to make
 its IT infrastructure more efficient. Radio
 frequency identification (RFID) microchips,
 for example, may replace bar codes and
 security tags with a combination
 technology that costs less money. This
 new wireless technology (smart tag
 system) if used will provide a more
 efficient product-tracking mechanism.
              JIT in Wal-Mart

 In 1983, Wal-Mart invested in point-of-sale
 terminals, which simultaneously rang up
 sales and tracked inventory deductions.
 Four years later, a massive satellite
 system linked all of the stores to company
 headquarters, giving Wal-Mart's
 centralized IT department real-time
 inventory data.
              JIT in Wal-Mart

 In 1996 Wal-Mart launches its e-
 commerce Web site. The E-business
 system is used to regularly communicate
 sales and inventory data from every store
 to thousands of suppliers and buyers, and
 deploy a private trading hub to consolidate
 its purchasing globally and bring suppliers
 online to bid on contracts-all part of a plan
 to lower costs and pass on savings.
              JIT in Wal-Mart

 Wal-Mart approached its suppliers as if
 they were partners. By implementing a
 collaborative planning, forecasting and
 replenishment (CPFR) program, Wal-Mart
 began a just-in-time inventory program
 that reduced carrying costs for both the
 retailer and its suppliers.

 Wal-Mart has gotten very good at keeping
  stores optimally stocked. Being able to
  stock their shelves as soon as they get
 Wal-Mart has almost no supply storage
  areas because its vendor managed, just in
  time inventory system, which makes
  suppliers responsible for delivering
  product when Wal-Mart needs it.
