Putting together Work Order Job Kits is more than just gathering the parts needed for a planned job.
The Kitting of parts and materials is a mission-critical component to the successful execution of any Planned job.
The “Job Kit” should also contain items that are required by the crafts as they execute the Job Plan. Some of those items are, and this is certainly not an exhaustive list:
- thread locking compound
- dye penetrant
- last but not least…rags!
One of the objectives in fully preparing a Work Order Job Package is to include every tangible item that could possibly be needed in the “Kit” for the crafts to execute the assigned task to completion. If the craft-persons feet have to leave the work area, something in the Planning of the job was missed.
