Based on the video and operational management concepts:
1. Discuss what at a hospital might be managed on a just-in-time basis.
2. What contingency plans would need to be in place to handle potential supply disruptions? If a pack were missing any items, how might the delay affect the patient and the patient's family?

3. Finally, what is the cost tradeoff for the implementation?
