Verified Purchase. The book does not represent its title, only two chapters talk briefly about Line Balancing and JIT Kitting, the rest in an introduction to the assembly line. It uses the Japanese terminology a lot which I found it irrelevant. December 12, - Published on Amazon. Very basic Book. I was expecting more of real line balance.
