just-in-case manufacturing (JIC manufacturing)

Part of the Electronics glossary:

Just-in-case (JIC) manufacturing is the traditional model of production, in which products are created in advance and in excess of demand. According to the principles of lean production, the JIC model wastes resources because inventories must be maintained. The just-in-time (JIT) model of manufacturing was developed to eliminate the wastefulness of the traditional model.
