PLAY! by Sephora is a high-mix, high-volume monthly subscription kit that delivers hyper-personalized and curated cosmetic products to end customers. For fulfillment partners like Case Mason who needs to deliver highly customized packages simultaneously to all subscribers, automating the kitting workflow presents unique challenges:
- Compressed kitting windows
- Short and intense production cycles
- Increasing number of component SKUs
- Frequent line changeovers
Operational flexibility and efficiency are critical to Case Mason’s growth strategy. To increase capacity and reduce their cost-to-deliver, Case Mason partnered with Vicarious to optimize their kitting program by deploying intelligent robots.
