This is a Japanese inventory control technique. In this technique , to create higher focus on quality on the few items that are in inventory , very low or no excess inventory is maintained.
For example , in a construction project , if you need say 150,000 MT of Cement for a particular important structure , then it will be so planned to deliver the Cements that it is consumed immediately upon delivery at site. It should not be kept stocked for long months, which deteriorates the quality of the Cement.
This is my understanding so far. Any comment please.

It's a strategy to reduce the inventory costs especially in the production of any product. From the exam point of view it's very important that the high quality products should be delivered to reduce the defects.
