It is well known that the performance of the JIT production system is optimum in a deterministic environment. However, real-world situations contain uncertainties in processing times, with which traditional JIT does not deal well. In this paper, we present a newly developed Kanban system that systematically manipulates the number of Kanbans to cope with the discrepancies introduced by the uncertainty in processing times. We illustrate that the performance of this new system is superior to the traditional JIT system in such an environment.
