Kitting: A Value Added Service That Saves Time & Money
NEW YORK- May 14th 2014- In recent years, Nu Source Technologies LLC has seen a steady increase in the number of kitting requests from its customers. Kitting, a form of supply chain management, is the pre-production of accurately-counted and labeled replacement parts for any build, making them readily available when needed. A comprehensive program will pre-determine the essential parts for rebuilds or preventative maintenance, while stocking parts for unanticipated failures or wear and tear. The benefits of kitting are significant.
Benefits of a kitting program:
- Eliminates direct costs and potential risks of sourcing
- Provides timely response to swap defunct or aging parts
- Offers critical parts availability & flexibility
- Reduces time spent on procurement
- Lowers material overhead costs
- Reduces inventory and storage space costs
- Decreases number of purchase orders
- Improves inventory planning process
“The cost reduction and efficiencies of kitting are considerable,” said Yaniv Lahiji, President of Nu Source Technologies LLC,. “We provide maintenance, repair and spare part kits that are specific to customer production, packaging, and quality requirements.
