Assembly and sub-assembly


Assembly and sub-assembly are common procedures in manufacturing which involve combining two or more separate components. The items are brought together to form a complete unit and packaged as a single end product. Assemblies can be simple or complex and the combined parts that result will often themselves be fitted into a larger assembly or collection of components. They are then called sub-assemblies.



So, what is kitting? In simple terms, kitting is ‘product bundling’, a service that combines multiple distinct but related parts into ready-to-ship packages (kits) for transfer to an end user or assembler. Kits range from the basic to the complicated but, unlike assemblies, the individual items in kits often remain separate until compiled by the end consumer. Kitting is an effective method that enables customers to optimise selling and cross-selling opportunities. Flexibly combining various products into different kits or sets increases your inventory without incurring additional storage costs.
