Abstract

This study investigates the effect of rural location and access to other firms on adoption of just-in-time (JIT) and access to JIT-using customers in a sample of plants representing all manufacturing industries. Nonmetropolitan location, proximity to other firms, and interstate highway access do not appear to be important determinants of JIT involvement. Plants in the East North Central and Mountain regions are more likely than those in the Pacific region to be involved in JIT, when other characteristics are held constant. A number of plant characteristics, including plant size, ownership, age, workforce education, and use of marketing assistance, have significant effects on JIT involvement. However, the statistical models appear to have relatively little explanatory power, suggesting that JIT involvement is largely determined by factors not measured by the model.
