Companies are always looking for competitive ways to meet and exceed client’s needs. Kitting, packaging, labeling, palletizing, reworking, and managing inventory are all ways that companies enhance supply chain optimization.
Adding value to services helps companies to set themselves apart from the competition. They are ready for the supply process, ensuring continuous improvement and inventory management for an efficient process.
Kitting As Supply Chain Optimization
Product life cycles are becoming increasingly shorter. This causes the demand for parts, replacements, and new parts to go up. Manufacturers and clients need more products and more space to house those products.
Fortunately, kitting is a solution to this problem. Kitting is an ideal process when it comes to packaging items with identical or similar products. Kitting is a service that combines single products into one component. Multiple SKUs are consolidated into one single SKU which ultimately reduces costs and improves efficiency. As an example, small electronics part kitting is a very efficient way for manufacturers to improve productivity. Their employees aren’t going to several bins to get the needed parts for assembly.
How Does Kitting Help?
At Peoria Production Shop, we use kitting to optimize time, order, and processes. Our employees do not have to search for pieces, rather the pieces are already accounted for. Likewise, our automated inventory system tracks the products as a single unit. This allows us to have a cleaner and more efficient operation.
Kitting speeds up the production time and lowers the overall cost of assembly. Employees save time for picking and packaging orders. Optimizing our time and money allows us to customize a great number of kits specific to customer requirements. This translates into a positive and efficient experience for both us and our customers.
