What Is Kitting?

Understand how Kitting fits into the supply chain

Kitting is the light assembly and preparation of units, such as components, parts or tools, ahead of production or shipment. It is especially helpful when a company has a variety of products that are usually purchased together. As an example, a warehouse may package several surgical instruments together into one bag for delivery instead of delivering one bag of scalpels, one bag of scissors, etc., so that upon delivery, surgical kits are already assembled and ready to use. This adds value for the customer while also streamlining and optimizing the fulfillment process.
