dc.description.abstractThere is growing concern over inventory management policies within the Navy as well as questions as to how to improve supply management efficiency. Just-in-time is an inventory management system that has enabled private industries to reduce inventories and waste to become more efficient and profitable. The primary focus of this study is to determine the potential for JIT application within the Navy based on certain criteria necessary for a successful JIT system. Navy organizations are categorized and certain aspects of their resupply functions are analyzed to determine the appropriate inventory management system. A comparison is made of the Navy inventory management system to the elements of a JIT resupply system. An assessment is made to determine eligibility of Navy operations for a JIT inventory management system. Finally, a case study of Naval Aviation Depot North Island, an organization that exhibits potential for JIT, is examined for the specific conditions necessary to permit a JIT resupply system. The study of the NADEP reveals a viable potential for a JIT system within the component repair function. Further research involving review of the current inventory management procedures for the NADEP is recommended.en_US
