dc.description.abstractJust-In-Time purchasing is a materials management system that has been successfully implemented in various commercial and Government entities in recent years. The major issue in this thesis is: 'What are the elements that ensure successful implementation outcomes between the Government purchasing offices and various commercial contractors?' The objective is to determine the critical elements for implementing a Just-In-Time purchasing operation. The intent is to provide a guide for implementing Just-In-Time purchasing so other agencies can duplicate the success of this process. The Just-In-Time purchasing process substantially reduces inventories through electronic order placement, long-term contracts, and direct delivery from the vendor to the user. The Department of Defense can capture these benefits by implementing Just-In-Time purchasing in all Government purchasing offices.en_US
