I worked in manufacturing most of my career. Kits are what one uses when building something on an assembly line. Kitting is going to the warehouse and filling the kit boxes and may include delivery to the assembly line. If you like to work alone, or with a few co-workers it would be a good low stress job; no dealing with the general public. Not rocket science so don't expect high wages.

While these guys are probably right, it would help to know WHERE this job interview is. You don't have to name names, just what type of business they conduct. Factory or massage parlor makes a huge difference.

Picking parts from inventory as per a build sheet for a particular machine/assembly and forming a "kit" that gets sent to the assembly line for build. Can be a very repetitious and non-rewarding job but sometimes a good way to get in the door so to speak. Doesn't happen to be in central MI does it?

Trade vernacular is interesting.

I once worked as a stripper. Sounds interesting, doesn't it? Actually, the job didn't have anything to do with adult entertainment, I worked in a print shop and "stripping" was trade lingo for putting photo negatives together on a masking sheet to make a plate to run on a printing press.

I kinda miss those days. I always thought it would be fun to own a one man print shop if I ever retired. but--high speed copiers and full color copiers have put a HUGE dent in small print shops.

I still Strip once in awhile in our shop.. been around since 1907 still going.. adapted to foil printing, large diecutting.. Back in the day alot of shops scrapped their letterpress presses esp when offset came along big..we kept ours, though idle for awhile have came back in usage in a major way now.. Osha wouldnt like them but cant do a blamming thing since we are all family.. One of our presses is a miller cylinder press sucker weighs 14000 lbs.. diecut pocket folders on it..good to know there are a few other "strippers" on here retired or not..LOL

Goose It is funny that you worked as a stripper in the printing business. My wife did that very same job 25 years ago. It was before we married and she was living in Cinn., Oh. The company was called Viva Color. They did commercial printing of mainly cereal boxes and candy bar wrappers. P&G was their biggest customer.

Thank you everyone. I will pass it along to her. Since returning from Italy, she has been unemployed and "homeless". She needs a job first.

For sure a good idea to know what kind of job you might end up doing. With all the new catch phrases, it's not easy to keep up with all of that stuff. The link below gives a formal definiton. Never heard of it, learn something new every day here at the YT site.

As mentioned, typically "kitting" refers to bundling related parts into a larger package. Usually high-speed, repetitious, and tedious BUT it MUST be done with a high degree of accuracy, as anyone who's ever bought something and found they had two left-hand thingamajiggers and no right-hand one can attest!

My wife works for Volvo Trucks NA. Kiting in that factory is pulling all the parts off the shelf for a particular part of the truck,such as the cab and putting them in a buggy to be taken to the assembly line to be installed by the assemblers. They know what to put in the box from the build sheet. If they put the wrong part in the box, guess who catches HE_ _ ?

In our factory they do exactly what you describe. Rolling carts are pre-loaded (kitted) with parts for the particular machine and then delivered to the station where they are assembled. The contents of the kits for a particular station might differ due to unique options and other varients of the base machine and this is tracked with bar coding. It is an effective way to reduce a lot of the inventory that typically would need to be stored right at the assembly line. This speeds up the assembly process since only the parts needed for a particular machine are present at one time and the assemblers don't have to sort through a lot of boxes to find the right ones.

Hello sde,

In shipping, kitting means related items are bundled and shipped together,

Guido.

Just a guess, packaging parts into a kit?
