BMW. Along the lines presented in the previous two sections, BMW faced a trade-off between heijunka and JIS production in one of their European engine factories in 2003. Historically the engine plant had been organized around the concept of heijunka, permitting extremely stable production and a high utilization (ranging between 95 and 99%). The smoothing of the production schedule was carried out by a module of the SAP/R3 system. Engines were delivered to the customer approximately in the order in which they were produced. In the fall of 2003, three major assembly plants in Germany began to request JIS delivery as part of a move toward offering increasingly customized cars to consumers, with a goal that each customer should receive the car within ten days of signing the contract. Responding to this request required a) a warehouse to permit engines to be resorted prior to shipment, b) a decoupling point to allow standard engines to be produced to stock and then finalized in the right sequence, or c) that the engine plant move to a production schedule that matched the required sequence. Although the idea of JIS was attractive, there was great concern that its implementation would result in an unacceptably low capacity utilization. Furthermore, the long distance of the engine plant from customer plants and the complexity of the product implied that JIS implementation would be relatively difficult. The question came down to where in the process engines should be put into sequence, that is, at what point in the process did need for flexibility become greater than need for efficiency? The first author of this paper was brought in by the company to aid the engine plant in this analysis under the supervision of the second and third authors.
