Inventory accuracy and an organized kitting process are essential to an effective inventory management program. Proper kit management minimizes the time storeroom and maintenance employees spend searching for parts, which can ultimately lead to more on-schedule repairs and higher equipment uptime.
CribMaster offers manufacturers efficient and accurate kitting. In the CribMaster Inventory Management System software, all of the inventory items required for specific jobs can be grouped into defined kits.
With a kit set up, the storeroom attendant prints the pick list to pull each item at once, saving time and ensuring that the maintenance technician has the necessary tools or parts to complete the work. Kits can also be made into full assemblies, with all of the items combined under a single item number and stored in one location.
CribMaster storage solutions in the staging area provide workers with access to prepared, ready kits when they need them. The following CribMaster solutions are well suited to kit management, whether you need to develop a new kitting process or improve on your current practices.
