The kitting process within SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) entails the combination or assembly of components or parts to generate a final product.

  • Initiation: The kitting process initiates upon the system’s receipt of a request for a particular product or kit assembly.
  • Availability Check: The system verifies the presence of all required components or parts within the warehouse inventory.
  • Picking: The system generates picking tasks to retrieve the reserved components from their respective storage locations within the warehouse.
  • Kit Assembly: The picked components are transported to the assembly area or workstation, where they are combined or assembled to create the final kit or product.
  • Shipping: The assembled and packed kit is prepared for shipping. Shipping documents, such as packing lists and delivery notes, are generated, and the kit is transferred to the outbound staging area for further transportation.

When we get the demand/order for the kit, then we start preparing/producing the kit. we do not prepare kits to store in inventory.
