  1. 1. In-plant materials supply: Supporting the choice between kitting and continuous supply

    Author : Robin Hanson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; kitting; in-plant materials supply; continuous supply; materials feeding principles;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the two materials feeding principles of “kitting” and “continuous supply” within in-plant materials supply in mass customised assembly. With the principle of kitting, parts are delivered and presented to the assembly operations in pre-sorted kits, with each kit containing parts for one assembly object. READ MORE

  3. 3. Materials Handling in Production Systems: Design and Performance of Kit Preparation

    Author : Patrik Fager; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; kitting; kit preparation; order picking; materials supply systems;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on processes for kit preparation, which are applied with the materials supply principle of kitting in production systems for mixed-model assembly. With kitting, assembly processes are supplied with portions of pre-sorted components, and each portion makes up a kit that holds the components needed for one assembly object at one or several assembly processes.

    Abstract : Modern manufacturing systems seem to be shifting from mass production to mass customisation, which means that systems must be able to manage changes in customer demands and requirements, new technology as well as environmental demands. This in turn leads to an increase in product variants that need to be assembled. READ MORE
