What Is Kitting?

KITTING is the process in which individually separate but related items are picked, packaged, and supplied together as one part number. For example, in ordering an engine overhaul kit online, a dealer or distributor may select pistons, rings, seals, and other necessary spare parts from several vendors. An OEM may choose to increase the ease of ordering for its dealer network by using NewStream Enterprises (NSE) kitting services.

  NSE would subsequently build customized overhaul kits by procuring parts from multiple vendors, pack the parts in a OEM branded box, and distribute the product to the OEM's parts distribution centers (PDC) or direct ship to the dealer network as needed.  This kitting option also reduces inventory and handling costs for the OEM.
