kitting
 n.— «What makes the Reyes relationship with TMMTX so special is its role in the innovative process known as parts “kitting.” TMMTX is the first Toyota truck assembly plant to adopt the kitting process, which is currently used at its most advanced passenger-car factories. Kits, or sets of parts, can be delivered to a specific installation point, or mounted inside the truck as it travels down the assembly line delivering parts to more than one installation point.» —“All-New Toyota Tundra Assembly Plant Advances Benchmark Toyota Production System” The Auto Channel Nov. 16, 2006.
