Just-in-sequence (JIS) consulting

Bundled expertise for your JIS success

For you as a supplier, just-in-sequence (JIS) means that you have to comply exactly with the customer's specifications in terms of quantity, time, place and sequence of delivery. This is only cost-effective if you also optimize your internal processes. You can create a solid foundation for this with the right software solution. We support you on the way to this goal with an individual and future-proof JIS concept. Let us advise you!

What is Just in Sequence?

Just in Sequence is a special delivery concept. Goods and products must not only arrive at the right place at the right time (Just in Time or JIT), but also in the correct order. JIS delivery is particularly common in the automotive industry. Car manufacturers have optimized their processes for a tight production cycle so that they can process all parts for assembly exactly when they are delivered.

Why is just-in-sequence delivery such a big challenge?

In JIS delivery, an error on the part of the supplier means, in the worst case, a production standstill for your customer. If this happens too often, your supplier rating will suffer. And if your delivery reliability is too poor, you have to expect that your customers will switch to another supplier.

The pressure is therefore particularly great to always deliver correctly and to implement smooth logistics and production processes.

If you want to map JIS processes yourself, you need digital support. There are various solutions for this. The advantages and disadvantages of these alternatives cannot be generalized. Apply to any situation. It strongly depends on the functions of the specific software solution, on the requirements of the customers to be supplied, on the number of customers and also on the existing systems.

We compare the five most important solutions.

What questions do you have about Just in Sequence?

The biggest problems in JIS processes

External factors

Not all problems can be solved internally. Also external factors have an impact on how efficiently your processes run. These include, for example:

  • Material shortage
  • Sudden disruptions in the supply chain
  • Production downtime
  • Skills shortage

Supply chain managers and schedulers in supplier companies are used to playing firefighter. They react when it is actually already too late and iron out any process errors. If necessary, they schedule additional shifts, organize special trips or calm dissatisfied customers on the phone.

Internal problems

But also Internal problems prevent you from creating smooth JIS processes. Suppliers struggle with challenges especially at the following points:

  • Communication via EDI (electronic data interchange) with customers
  • Production according to sequence
  • System failures
  • Lack of resources

You can counter these problems by creating transparency and optimizing your process flows. Digital solutions are necessary for this. Software can help you identify problems early on, communicate cleanly and transparently with your customers, and counter failures or shortages early on. Only then will you be able to supply your customers in the right order, regardless of the situation along your supply chain.

The most frequently asked questions about Just In Sequence (JIS) consulting

Just in Time (JIT) was originally defined to tie the supply chain in the automotive industry more closely to the OEM and to make the delivery process even more accurate. With Just in Time, the supplier is required to deliver the goods in a certain quantity within a certain period of time (days or hours).  Just in Sequence (JIS) is then the refinement of delivering the products to the OEM in the correct sequence. As a rule, the sequence is based on the OEM's assembly sequence. Just as the vehicles are on the assembly line, the add-on parts or systems must be delivered to the OEM by the supplier. The time frames are usually much finer and tighter. Here, it is often a matter of supplying the OEM to the assembly line to the minute.

The advantages are time and sorting savings. Goods receipt at the OEM can be accelerated. The products can be placed directly on the assembly line. This makes logistics much easier.

The implementation is usually done by the functions of the SAP JIT module. The logic for the JIT/JIS delivery scenario can be set up there. In most cases, programming is still required, which must be implemented in SAP through user exits or BADIs within the JIT environment. SAP provides a framework solution here, which must be developed in the project. (This is usually not possible without programming).
