How to Improve Your Storeroom and Technician Efficiency With Job Kitting
A Good Job Kitting Process
Barriers to a Job Kitting Process
- No room to set up a kitting area: Start small and don’t worry about building a large kitting area. You need to prove the process and gain support before jumping into a large kitting area.
- Not enough people/time: Having job kits will reduce the amount of work that the storeroom has to do long-term. So make sure that everyone involved understands this. Also, since the process should start small, it should not require too much time initially
- Poor job plans: Accurate job plans are a foundation for the kitting process, so if poor job plans are an everyday thing, then kitting should be delayed.
- Inaccurate storeroom inventory: This can drive extended times to kit and lead to the kitting process being viewed as not working. If there are inaccurate inventory values, this should be a focus of the storeroom prior to starting the kitting process.
