Padmini Motors Ltd1

A Lean Supply Chain Through ‘Just-in-Time’ System

After the liberalization of the Indian economy in 1991, the auto sector was one of the first few industries to face the stiff competition from the foreign MNCs, which started putting their foothold on the Indian soil to tap the green market. The auto manufacturers lost their government protection umbrella and had no other alternative but to remain competitive by developing cost-based or differential-based competitive strategies. Within the short span of 5–6 years, the market was flooded with world-class passenger car models and multi-utility vehicles produced in India by the world auto giants like, Ford, Mercedes, Hyundai, Toyota and so on.
