Automobile Part & Automotive Industry (CKD & SKD)
KD: knock-down kit (also styled knockdown kit, knocked-down kit, or simply knockdown) is a kit containing the parts needed to assemble a product.
The parts are typically manufactured in one country or region, then exported to another country or region for final assembly.
One common form of knockdown is a complete knockdown (CKD), which is a complete kit needed to assemble a product. Also, some company may choose SKD(Semi Knock Down).
It is a method of supplying parts to a market, particularly in shipping to foreign nations, and serves as a way of counting or pricing. CKD is a common practice within the automotive industry.
