one of my clients emailed me a drawing. to replace one crucial part for their production line. its a simple pvc block with some copper insert to complete the electrical circuit.
he told me; they need to order 800 sets of it.
good… in no time i studied the drawing and asked the material suppliers for the material costing and discussed with my production guys ways to speed up fabrication time in order to reduce manufacturing costs.
i submit the quotation… best price based to the 800 set quantity.
quotation for a unit price.. means price for one unit only
dah sampai kat tangan his boss
then this evening… he called me that the actual quantity was 1200 set
he made mistake
duhhhhh….. technically; other suppliers would quote unit price more cheaper than me
the more quantity..the cheaper. everything ordered in bulks
doakan moga abanglong dapat the project!
