Bingo - that's the Achilles heel of JIT.
A spike in demand.
In this case, it isn't just the JIT folks who are getting into trouble in terms of the inventory supply chain. Even if production could be bumped some and you have a month's worth or even a quarter's worth of supply on hand to handle surges, virtually no mass production companies can handle and keep up with demand when for any given week there is more than a year's worth of demand present and the demand doesn't abate after a week or two.
