Kitting Bin of Parts

Kitting—in managing your aerospace and aviation parts, it’s not a new concept, but it remains one of the most effective strategies for boosting efficiency. When implemented correctly, kitting provides many benefits:

  • Easier operator training and reduced training costs
  • Efficient machine utilization (processes flow without line stoppage due to part shortages or searching for parts)
  • Reduced lead times
  • Reduced part damage from excess handling

However, when you outsource kitting, you reap even more benefits, including:

  • Simplified inventory. A kit of items simplifies inventory. It counts as one part number.
  • Customized packaging. Keep all parts secure and free of debris with no effort on your part.
  • Maximized warehouse space. When kitting happens off-site, you need not waste your own floor space on kitting. Just receive and go.
  • Improved productivity. Just as you save space, when outsource kitting services, your staff saves time too, and that means improved productivity in other tasks.
  • Reduced labor costs. Kitting parts is time-consuming work. If parts are not kitted, it is time-consuming for assemblers to search inventory, pull parts and log usage.
  • Consolidate special services. Special services like after-market plating can be handled as part of the usual kitting process before delivery, so there’s no additional vendor management or extra steps on your part.
