Definition: What is Kitting?
Filling orders by preassembling individual items into ready-to-ship kits instead of picking and packing those individual items as orders are received is known as kitting. This method offers a high rate of savings in fulfillment costs.
Specifically, kitting involves a process where separate but related items are grouped, packaged, and supplied together as one unit.
A typical example: when ordering a computer online, a customer may select memory, drives, peripherals, and software from any number of alternatives. The supplier assembles these parts into a kit to be shipped as one unit.
