Abstract

The surgical box supply chain management can be problematic through the surgical scheduling without an effective management control of the forecast, the stock, and the pulled demand. This research study analyzes just in time application with the use of the Kanban in the surgical box supply chain management. The researchers realized this study between December 2016 and July 2018. The main objective of the study is to apply the just in time as a management tool for the surgical boxes. The research has two periods: the observational and the tool management adoptions analysis periods. The results section presents three subsections: “the inventory,” “the integration among software, systems, and people,” and the “participative management.” The discussion brings two stages named: “the first stage-structuring the just in time delivery” and “the second stage-the just in time delivery.” The authors conclude that the supply chain can be dynamic and customized. The mass customization can be inserted and the industry can bring contributions with new opportunities like the Kanban to implement the just in time application.
