What is Kitting & Assembly?

Kitting & assembly is simply a method that can be used when managing the process of manufacturing. It can be used to manage both the raw materials being used and the finished products that are developed, providing you with the support you need to get the very best results.

Kitting is commonly used in logistics as well as production, adapting its use to suit your needs, making it a versatile and valuable solution. It works to gather and organise the components needed when building a product so that it is easier to access the items and streamline the production process, helping you to get the best value from time and costs.

Assembly is the process of using each component and building a specific product using a set of instructions and the items gathered during the kitting process. By making the decision to use kitting & assembly, you can look forward to a better understanding of your inventory as well as a more streamlined system that can yield better results.
