What is Kitting?

The definition of Kitting furnished by the www.businessdictionary.com is the “Process in which individually separate but related items are grouped, packaged, and supplied together as one unit. For example, in ordering a PC online, a customer may select memory, drives, peripherals, and software from several alternatives. The supplier then creates a customized kit that is assembled and shipped as one unit.”

At California Integration Coordinators, Inc. (CIC, Inc.) the kitting of electronic components for PCB assembly is our forte. It is the “heart” of what we do! CIC, Inc. has been providing electronic component kitting for major manufacturers for over 20 years.

Kitting is a very important process prior to assembly. All the components required per the BOM must be included; properly identified, properly packaged, with appropriate overages for the PCB assembly process to take place. Skilled and knowledgeable quoting of the BOM, and timely procurement of the requirements, are the Key elements to being able to produce Kits for assembly. California Integration Coordinators www.cic-inc.com is known as an assembly “favorite” because of the attention to every single detail that can impact an assembly.
