Abstract: Just-in-time (JIT) has proved result oriented in manufacturing. The purpose of this paper is to search JIT as a strengthening tool to supply chain management (SCM). Systematic literature review (SLR) methodology employed by this research is used to evaluate and categorise a literature of quality articles published during 18 years (1985-2014) in setting up dimensions and attributes of JIT supply chain management (JSCM). The suppliers of goods include vendors of raw materials, manufacturers, and distributors of finished goods who largely claim stake holders (SH) of the supply chain try to be as close to the end users (EU) so that a win-win situation is produced in the business. Descriptive analysis and thematic analysis show that in recent years the topic has emerged as capable field of researches. With the help of dimensions and attributes sets of hypothesis have been set up, which show positive impact of JIT on SCM practices.
