Kitting versus line stocking in the automotive assembly industry : the influence of part characteristics

Author
Organization
Abstract
Kitting and line stocking are two part feeding methods that are common in industry. Each system has particular operational benefits and disadvantages but there is a lack of research investigating the trade-offs between both systems. A mathematical cost model is presented for the assignment of individual parts to the materials supply method which is most cost effective for the overall materials delivery system (kitting or line stocking). The model is tested on realistic datasets. Results are presented.
