Abstract

This case is a sequel to the Sunwind AB (A) case (IMD-6-0132), (the planned (B) case did not materialise). It describes the actions taken between November 1985 and August 1987 to implement Just-in-Time sequenced delivery of floor lids directly onto Volvo''s 700 series assembly line at its Torslanda Plant. It also documents the results achieved. An unresolved issue is how Sunwind AB can capitalise on the changes that have been made and the potential that exists for further improvement. The focus moves from Sunwind as a Just-in-Time supplier to Sunwind as a Just- in-Time manufacturer.
