JITbase offers Industry 4.0 solutions that address the shortage of specialized employees (by allowing machinists to handle more CNC machines) and improve production margins (by reducing downtimes and increasing machine utilization).

Our offering consists of three modules:

  • Machine Monitoring to track production KPI and reduce machine downtime
  • OPS (Optimal Path System) to guide the operator to the next machine that requires attention, making it easier to manage more machines at the same time
  • CNC Program Optimizer to improve CNC programs by reducing human intervention and detecting flaws to remove them


We believe that a CNC machine should never be stopped. This is why, in the context of the labour shortage, we seek to make the interaction between humans and machines as efficient as possible. As a leader in Industry 4.0, our vision is to make CNC machining centers more competitive by offering them the most efficient technologies to both increase machine uptime and reduce the average number of operators per machine.


  • Increase CNC machine uptime by 20% on average
  • Decrease the number of operators per machine by 50% on average


  • Innovation / Technology

    JITbase strives to use the best technologies to meet customer needs, particularly in terms of the Internet of Things (IoT), big data and artificial intelligence. R&D and our intellectual property are at the heart of our development strategy.
  • Quality

    We strive to deliver a well-coded and well-tested product that meets the expectations of our customers.
  • Caring / teamwork

    JITbase advocates transparency, kindness and teamwork. We believe that everyone has the right to make mistakes and we like to think that learning and improving comes with mistakes.
  • Diversity

    We believe that diversity leads to greater openness and greater horizons (1 + 1 = 3), which is why we want to build a team that is representative of the community.
  • Lean / clear scope, “definition of done” / optimized communication

    We believe in simplicity. Like the best principles of Lean Manufacturing, we improve by decreasing “waste”. Less is more.
  • Leadership / Ownership

    At JITbase, the employees own their decisions. They are encouraged to take initiative, and to be or become leaders on their projects and tasks. We believe that a responsible person is more motivated, more efficient and more fulfilled in his or her work.
  • Customer centric (rapid release / clarity of product purpose, vision)

    JITbase is built around customers. We strive to understand their needs and to find the best technological solutions to meet them. Adherents of the agile philosophy, we iterate quickly and we listen to feedback to continuously improve our products. We clearly communicate our mission and long-term vision.
  • Training / Learning / Personal development

    JITbase places particular importance on personal development. We encourage the training and lifelong learning that makes each individual grow.
  • Environment / Well-being / Ecology

    Quality of life is important to JITbase. We favor public transport (and cycling) and offer a pleasant space to work, while respecting the environment as much as possible.
