In many organisations, Just-In-Time (JIT) implementation plays a significant role in minimizing their excessive costs, and increasing their efficiency. However, the risks accompanying JIT strategies are often overlooked and affect system processes disrupting the entire chain of supply. This paper proposes an inventory model that can simultaneously reduce costs and risks in JIT systems. This model is developed in order to ascertain an optimal ordering strategy for procuring raw materials by using multi-external suppliers and local backup supplier to reduce the total cost of the products, and at the same time to reduce the risks associated with JIT supply within production systems. The effectiveness of the developed model is tested using an example problem with inbuilt disruption. A comparison between the cost of using the JIT system and using the inventory system shows the superiority of the use of the inventory policy.
