Bad news for automakers: That fire at the Renesas chip plant was worse than expected


Re: Yet again JIT causing problems

It's not JIT alone; single sources and supply chains contribute. Also proprietary platforms where supplier substitution is impossible. If there were multiple routes, suppliers and substitutes, JIT wouldn't be an issue. It has delivered massive cost savings over the long term so I don't see it going anywhere.

It's crazy that any one company should have more than 20% of a global market. More competition, please!
