Abstract

The current paper aims to determine how the location of kit preparation affects in-plant materials supply performance. To achieve this, three different cases were identified, where principally different locations for kit preparation could be studied and compared: (1) at the assembly line, (2) in the main storage of the assembly plant, and (3) in a separate kit preparation area in-between storage and assembly line. By use of a theoretical framework, developed in the paper, an analysis is made of how the materials supply performance in the cases is linked to the location of the kit preparation.
