Once the sample manufactured product is created then the sample will be sent to the customer or the customer would be invited to have a look at the sample and review pros and cons if they find any with the bag engineers. The formal quote for the product, the custom patterns setup, and more are decided. Pricing structure in manufacturing will include the labor for engineer, creative director, the labour to cut, sew and assemble. Materials and hardware will then be decided based on the client choices. Manolucci works both with customer materials or Manolucci will provide their own materials as well.
Manolucci has ties with suppliers within the locality and hence would be able to arrange for more economical yet quality options for the client. Manolucci furthermore ensures that the client is aware of their exact lead-times. It states on their website that their sample manufacturing lead-times might vary. This is because the works they are currently signed up with. However, once a project is accepted then the lead-time schedule would be given more properly to the client so that they have up-to-date and correct information. The production pricing and consumption figures are then provided. This strategy of customizing products intensively to suit customer requirements gives Manolucci a competitive advantage. Manolucci is not able to source as per demands (Manolucci, 2016).
Primarily, Manolucci will not waste resources in the form of materials. Employees and work hours for the manufacturing is assigned only when the orders are placed. Secondly, Manolucci is able to ensure that client details are given the utmost attention in manufacturing. Finally, Manolucci is able to provide competitive advantage by its economical and local sourcing actions, unlike its business counterparts who have taken the manufacturing facilities away from New Jersey or even the country.
