Inventory Item Kitting is a 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.

Imagine you are selling a deep water cleaning system and you forgot to include an O-ring in the package. The frustration it drives at installation time is certainly going to affect your relationship with the customer. Similarly, for example, if you only want to sale items in dozen but you want to maintain your inventory in “piece” unit then it becomes time consuming to create extra business process to handle it. Both of these use cases you can easily handle and save time by using Kitting.
