There is numerous staff involved in the successful delivery of an electronic component kit for PCB assemblies. The staff least visible have the most impact. I’d like to introduce our kitting staff.
Daily, the kitting staff doubles as the receiving-inspectors and conducts the product verification. They count the incoming items, compare the count against the purchase order, verify the part markings against the datasheet, and compare the description of the part with the bill of materials.
The kitters work with amazing accuracy under the pressure of shipping deadlines; can pick out a one digit difference on a 15 digit part number, can find the datasheet information to confirm the package and the part marking, and are able to quickly produce the paper document package the assembly house will require (kit list, labels, excess instructions, bar coding, etc.). The kitting staff put together the final presentation of the complete kit and the documentation for the customer; making each one beautiful in its organization of material all wrapped up in pink bubble wrap.
So often, it is the least visible contributors to a project that have the most significant impact. So many recipient assembly line staff claim our kits are the best and trust the component accuracy for efficient line set-up. The project coordinators on the front line graciously accept the compliments, but want you to know who is behind the kits; our kitting staff.
Our appreciation to the kitting staff at California Integration Coordinators, Inc. We truly appreciate the quality for which our organization has come to be known.
