Indian Petrons Ltd Ipl Is A Leading Manufacturing Company Under Increasing Pressure 2840372

Indian Petrons Ltd. (IPL) is a leading manufacturing company. Under increasing pressure to reduce costs, to contain inventory and to improve service, IPL’s Costing Department has recently undertaken a decision to implement a JIT System. The management of IPL is convinced of the benefits of their changes. But Supplies Manager Mr. Brian fears with the Costing Department’s decision. He said:“We’ve been driven by suppliers for years … they would insist that we could only purchase in thousands, that we would have to wait weeks, or that they would only deliver on Mondays!” Is Mr. Brian’s view point correct and why?
