In the field of inventory control, kitting parts is a crucial element in making a supply chain run smoothly. Parts kitting and sub-assembly is another method to improve productivity by reducing the number of line items ordered, received, stored, staged, and processed through your accounting system. Kitting involves organizing necessary components of a job into separate bins for easy access and tracking. BMI Injection Molding & Assembly, an ISO/TS 16949:2009 experienced OEM supplier, has the ability to kit parts to assist with work cell balancing, supporting the goal of having your operations run at a high level.
The kitting of parts reduces much of the movement and decision making time from a build process. In a bag-and-bin system, a worker may need to take time away from production to identify certain parts that are missing and correct the situation. Kitting makes it possible for the employee to have all components ahead of time, so production is never slowed or stopped. New part designs or changes can be adopted more quickly using a parts kitting system. If an older component has been upgraded, but still involves similar parts and processes, the manufacturer need only to slightly modify the kitting system already in place. Also, only parts that are needed to fulfill a certain job are purchased which enables management to have more knowledge of inventory costs.
