The Manual KIT Production (KP) department of Covance builds kits for clinical trails research. Nearly all of the manual kit area is sitting at an individual station and building kits by hand. Builders will have a computer to track orders and pace, materials to pull from, a work station/table, and a box to put finished kits into. They will work individually, but in pretty close quarters to build product one by one. This job is very repetitive and tedious.

Starting in SEPT 2021, the manual KP area is going to begin merging with the automated kit area. This means that manual folks will no longer be able to sit for the entire day and will be expected to be cross trained (eventually) in popular pick, pick cells, kit assembly, and more. The KP operation is moving to become ONE UNIT.
