Although kitting processes differ from one another, the core value and benefits are the same for all companies. Kitting increases product value and encourages repeat business. Manufacturers control production efficiency, storage space, and inventory control.

General Kitting Process

At Peoria Production Shop, we use Value Stream Mapping (VSM) to reduce non-value added activities from kitting processes and bring the value-added processes into the forefront for more efficient production. This helps us to eliminate waste practices that will ultimately reduce costs.

  1. Receive an order for multiple products.
  2. Collect each individual item.
  3. Assemble the products before packaging.
  4. Combine multiple components into one single SKU.
  5. Package all items. The individual items are scanned and placed into one or as few shipping boxes as possible.
  6. Create a new SKU. The components are added to the inventory system under one SKU, scanned, and shipped.
