Kitting Module

Introducing the Kitting Module

The Kitting module is located under the Products tab.
This module helps you to assemble and disassemble independent kits. This feature is typically used for kits being sent to FBA. Read more about kits here.

Assembling kits

To assemble the kit:

  1. Tap the Tool icon.
  2. The action dropdown should be set to Assemble.
  3. Scan/Enter an independent kit parent SKU.
  4. Enter the number of kits you need > Tap Go.
  5. The kit components will display for assembly.
  6. Scan or select a component.
  7. Enter the bin from which you are picking. A suggested bin may appear next to the Bin field. The suggestion is based on the following factors:
    1.  It will always be a sellable bin.
    2. The bin type will be always Normal or Temp.
    3. Primary bins will always be suggested first.
    4. The bin where the most or least of the product is currently stored will be suggested depending on if the client setting PickList Bin suggestion sort qty by ASC Order is enabled or not.
  8. Start picking units for the product by either scanning the barcode of the product or manually entering the Pick Qty.
  9. If you are using the Lot Numbers workflow, the system will prompt you to select the lot numbers from the dropdown for each component. All units of each component must have the same lot number.select lot numbers when assembling kit
  10. Press Pick. The kit component will be marked as Picked. Repeat for all components.
  11. The red notification icon will appear on the Tool icon when all components are picked and the kit is ready to assemble.
  12. When done, tap the Tool icon to assemble the component inventory to the parent.
  13. Follow the prompt to assemble.
  14. Select the bin where the kit will be assembled. If you decline to do so, the kit quantity will be placed in a default temporary bin.
  15. If you are using the Lot Numbers workflow:
    1. After all the units are picked, Skustack will show a dialog with each expirable component, the total qty needed (to assemble all the kit parents in the prep session), and a dropdown of the lot numbers available in the assembly bin for that component. The dropdown will default to the lot number that was picked for that specific prep session.
    2. When assembling an independent kit parent, a new lot number will be generated and assigned to the kit parent. Skustack will use the earliest expiration date/lot number combination from what was picked for the expirable components, but will add a suffix (-L1, -L2, etc) to the lot number.lot numbers dropdown
  16. Every time a kit is assembled a serial number is generated, which you can easily print out (either automatically by activating the setting Auto print kit labels or manfully from the kit assembly page). You can use the serial number when disassembling the kit to make sure you are disassembling the correct components even if the kit definition changed.Assembling kits

Disassembling kits

To disassemble a kit:

  1. Tap the Tool icon.
  2. The action dropdown should be set to Disassemble.
  3. Select the search mode in the drop-down list.

There are 3 search modes for kit disassembly:

  • Kit parent SKU (if you are disassembling the kit in this mode, the serial won’t be removed)
  • Assembled Serial Number (you should use this mode if the parent product requires serial scanning and the Serial Number was generated in Skustack)
  • Basic Serial Number (you should use this mode if the parent product requires serial scanning and the Serial Number was generated in Sellercloud (not Skustack))

 Kit parent SKU mode

  1. Enter kit parent SKU > tap GO.
  2. A second screen will open where you should specify the Original Bin (the bin the kit parent will be deducted from), Destination Bin(the bin to which the components will be added), and the quantity.
  3. If you are using the Lot Numbers workflow,  you will have to select a lot number from the list of existing lot numbers on the parent:
    • If that particular lot number had been assembled in Kitting module, then Skustack will automatically know the components expirable definition and which lot numbers to add back to which components
    • If that lot number had not been assembled in Kitting module (example: positive adjustment), then the user will be prompted to select a lot number for each expirable component (and will be able to create a new lot number for the component if it does not yet exist)disassembling kits with lot numbers
  4. Tap Disassemble.
  5. The Kit will disassemble into a Destination Bin.

Disassembling the kit

Assembled Serial Number mode

  1. Enter the Kit Parent Serial Number (the serial number generated during the kit assembly in Skustack).
  2. Select Original Bin (the bin the kit parent will be deducted from) and Destination Bin (the bin where the components will be added to).
  3. Tap GO.
  4. The Kit will disassemble into a Destination Bin. If any components require serial scanning, Skustack will find the serials that were scanned originally during assembly and add those serials back to the component in the bin it was disassembled into. It will then remove the parent from the original bin.
  5. If you are using the Lot Numbers workflow, Skustack will automatically know which parent lot number to use and which lot numbers should be added back to each component.

Basic Serial Number mode

  1. Enter the Basic Serial Number (the existing serial number or the serial added manually to the kit in Sellercloud).
  2. Select the Original Bin (the bin the kit parent will be deducted from) and Destination Bin(the bin where the components will be added to).
  3. If you are using the Lot Numbers workflow,  you will have to select a lot number from the list of existing lot numbers on the parent:
    • If that particular lot number had been assembled in Kitting module, then Skustack will automatically know the components expirable definition and which lot numbers to add back to which components
    • If that lot number had not been assembled in Kitting module (example: positive adjustment), then the user will be prompted to select a lot number for each expirable component (and will be able to create a new lot number for the component if it does not yet exist)disassembling kits with lot numbers
  4. Tap GO.
  5. The Kit will disassemble into a Destination Bin. Serial numbers will be added for any of the components that require a serial scan.Searching by basic serial number mode

Searching for kit prep sessions

To search for kit prep sessions:

  1. Tap the Search icon.
  2. If you want to filter by status you can select kit prep session status in the drop-down list.
  3. Scan/Enter independent kit parent SKU > Tap Search.
  4. All corresponding kit prep sessions will load.
  5. Press the + icon to add a new kit prep session.Searching for kit preparatory sessions
