Light Manufacturing and Kitting

Improve efficiency and cut down on costs by grouping related products into kits.

Why Use Light Manufacturing and Kitting

Sometimes, selling your products individually just won’t cut it. Processing orders separately, for parts that are commonly sold together, is difficult and slow. Kitting is an inventory management solution that can help increase your production efficiency. Here are a few industries where it is common practice to use kitting:

    • Assembly Plants
    • Distribution centers
    • Fulfillment services
    • Maintenance repair
    • Manufacturing
    • Production

Benefits of Using Kits

  • Free Up
  • Improve
  • Reduce Labor

  • Reduce Inventory Carrying Costs
  • Improve Cash Flow

Cut Down on Costs by Minimizing Errors

Kitting can cut down your shipping costs by reducing the number of order errors. Packaging several individual items separately can increase the chance of an order error being made. Using kits will help your employees fill orders right the first time. Kitting gives your company more control over your stockroom by preparing employees for orders as they arrive.

Improve Efficiency by Grouping Related Products

Kitting groups related products, that are typically packaged or assembled together. These kits can then be stored, ordered, and tracked, as a single item. This allows your company to respond faster to orders, reduce the labor required to package items, and increase your business’ productivity. Stand out from the competition, and increase customer satisfaction, by improving your operational efficiency.
