Product Name: Shirts
Product type: Specialized goods
Product Specification: Shirts (Export Quality).
Product line: Garments
Services: Repairance / claim




Marketing Plan
Market Research:
We have done market research in order to check the response of our customers in our targeted
market. It is necessary because we dont know much about our customers and their choice.

ECONOMICS
We are introducing our product in market of Lahore and Faisalabad.
Well capture 80% shares in market.
We have opportunity to expand our business into new markets by increasing our outlets.





5

Barriers while entering the market with new Brand name:
1. Consumer acceptance and brand recognition
2. Training and skills
3. Tariff barriers and quotas
4. High production costs
5. High marketing costs
How to overcome these barriers?
1. We are new in market having no recognition of our brand. People are not familiar with
our brand name so there is need to create awareness. Well create awareness by
advertisement through print media, electronic media etc.
2. We have new employees and workers. Some of them are semi skilled, some are skilled
and some others are non skilled so well train them for working in our organization so
that we can enhance productivity and efficiency. This task will be done by members of
our HR department. Other way is to hire all skilled members to reduce cost and to save
time.
3. Tariff barriers and quotas can create hurdles so well avoid importing raw material from
other countries so that taxes could be lessened, in this way overall cost will be reduced.
4. In order to overcome high production cost, we can contact with the supplier who
provide raw material at lowest cost in this way overall production cost will be reduced
and there are more chances to earn more profit.
5. While entering in new market we have to bear many costs like cost on advertisement
etc so this cost can be reduced by promoting product at just targeted market and
advertisement through ads on face book and wholesalers etc.

Factors that can affect the company


Change in Government regulations:
Government can affect the company in several ways;
it can impose more taxes on imports and can also ban the import of raw material. In this way
company will bear loss. So change in regulations has bad impact.

Change in the economy:
Change in economy is the most dangerous factor for our company.
If economic conditions change, like taste of people, demand, environmental changes, these can
affect our company badly.


Change in your industry:
Due to energy crisis etc or if technology changes occur in industry then
these can affect our company. By adopting new technology we have to bear high costs etc and if we
dont adopt new technology then our company is expected to bear high loss.

Operational Plan
Daily operations of the business:
cutting
Stitching
Designing
Packaging
Delivery
Production:
Organisations will adopt a variety of techniques to produce their goods or services. The technique
adopted will depend on a number of factors including;
The product or service
Quality of the product or service
Quantity of the product or service
Size of the organization
The type of organization
The organizations resources
Legislation applicable to the organization
The aim of all is to add value. Adding value is the process of converting the input to an output so that its
desirability to the customer increases. The input is the product or service at the start of the production
process. The output is the product or service at the end of the production process.
Line Production:
Line production is producing goods along a line of production. The goods will be passed along a line
containing different stages. At each stage in the line the goods will be altered. Often a person/group of
people will be responsible for just one stage in the process. The production method is financially the most
efficient and effective because there is less of a need for skilled workers.
Batch Production:
Batch production is the methods used to produce or process any product in groups or batches where the
products in the batch go through the whole production process together. This technique is probably the most
commonly used method for organizing manufacture and promotes specialist labor, as very often batch
production involves a small number of persons.



10

How to Reduce Production Cost?
Companies of all sizes have an incentive for cost reduction to remain competitive and to increase
profits. For companies that offer goods for sale, production costs are a major factor in pricing and
overall performance. Approaching the initial reduction of production costs in a structured way and
putting in place a system that continuously watches for additional savings are effective ways of
achieving reductions and keeping costs down. Such a system identifies the drivers of high
production costs and develops strategies to deal with them.
Component Costs
One of the main costs of production is the cost of the components that make up the finished
product. Reducing these costs even slightly on a percentage basis can have a substantial impact on
the cost of production. Sometimes companies can reduce component costs by buying in bulk or
substituting less expensive components that satisfy the requirements. Sometimes a design will
allow for fewer fasteners or less material without affecting quality. A review of such possibilities
often results in a decrease in production costs.
Change Suppliers
If the supplier of components is not willing to consider price reductions and can't offer less
expensive alternatives, a company can explore sourcing from different suppliers. It can send the
component requirements to various possible suppliers and select those that offer the best value in
terms of meeting the specifications and low pricing. Sourcing from two or three suppliers keeps
prices low due to competition.
Change Design
An effective strategy for reducing production costs is to redesign the product. Companies have to
identify the key characteristics of the product that are responsible for its success in the
marketplace. Other features may be costly but add little value for customers. Companies can
change the design of the product to reduce costs by eliminating unimportant features while
retaining the characteristics that customers value.
Employee Training
A company evaluating its production costs may find that employees are not working efficiently or
lack the awareness of costs that would allow them to help with reductions. Training employees to
understand how the production cycle works and their role in cost reduction makes them part of the
solution. When a company trains its employees to be aware of how to reduce costs and informs
them of progress, production workers become partners in cost reduction.






11


Costing Methods
Accurately applying production costs to products depends heavily on the type of product and the
production method.
Batch costing: This method is similar to job costing, but is used for large batches of homogeneous
products. Costs are applied to each product in the batch at the same rate; each process the batch goes
through during production will add costs to the products.
Applying costs to products is an integral part of the production process. Inefficient production methods
or poor cost accounting will lead to unprofitable products that will create financial instability in the
production company.
Quality Control
Quality control, or QC for short, is a process by which entities review the quality of all factors involved in
production. This approach places an emphasis on three aspects:
1. Elements such as controls, job management, defined and well managed processes, performance
and integrity criteria, and identification of records
2. Competence, such as knowledge, skills, experience, and qualifications
3. Soft elements, such as personnel, integrity, confidence, organizational culture, motivation, team
spirit, and quality relationships.
Controls include product inspection, where every product is examined visually, and often using a stereo
microscope for fine detail before the product is sold into the external market. Inspectors will be
provided with lists and descriptions of unacceptable product defects such as cracks or surface blemishes
for example:
The quality of the outputs is at risk if any of these three aspects is deficient in any way.
Quality control emphasizes testing of products to uncover defects and reporting to management who
make the decision to allow or deny product release, whereas quality assurance attempts to improve and
stabilize production (and associated processes) to avoid, or at least minimize, issues which led to the
defect(s) in the first place. For contract work, particularly work awarded by government agencies,
quality control issues are among the top reasons for not renewing a contract.

Total Quality Control
"Total quality control", also called total quality management, is an approach that extends beyond
ordinary statistical quality control techniques and quality improvement methods. It implies a complete
overview and re-evaluation of the specification of a product, rather than just considering a more limited
set of changeable features within an existing product. If the original specification does not reflect the

12

correct quality requirements, quality cannot be inspected or manufactured into the product. For
instance, the design of a pressure vessel should include not only the material and dimensions, but also
operating, environmental, safety, reliability and maintainability requirements, and documentation of
findings about these requirements. Total Quality Management (TQM) refers to management methods
used to enhance quality and productivity in business organizations.
Customer Services
Customers need different types of information or support services from a company. So we are providing our
customers with different services like online ordering, color warranty, and repairance and above all these we
are providing:
High Touch Customer Service
This is a popular style of customer service in high-end stores. Theres a well refined script that involves
approaching customers when they enter and saying something they can agree with (e.g. isnt it a nice
day?). When done correctly this leads to great experiences for customers and companies.
People in company personally welcomed each new member.
Human resources:
Human resources are the most important asset of a call center. The employees who interact with the
customers in a contact center are known as agents. These agents should know the different aspects of
their service and should try to solve the customers queries to satisfaction without any do-away with
the call attitude. To build these human resources, companies should develop a rigorous training
program and should ensure that their employees are updated with the changes or modifications in the
services through regular training sessions. Vendors should also motivate the agents to increase their
satisfaction and optimize their productivity and retention.
Inventory Control Methods
We control inventory by two methods:
Minimum/Maximum (M): The minimum/maximum control specifies the point at which an item
should be reordered (minimum stocking level) and a reorder quantity ceiling (maximum stocking
level). The NCAS uses the order point (minimum stocking level), inventory standard (maximum
stocking level), and order multiple to determine the order quantity.
o When inventory levels for an item fall below the minimum, as designated by the value in
the ORDER POINT field, the Company will notify the warehouse manager that
replenishment should be initiated.
o The inventory standard is the ceiling or maximum inventory level permitted for that
item at that warehouse. In other words, replenishment should not exceed the inventory
standard.
When the minimum/maximum control is selected, our company does not allow an order that causes
inventory to exceed the established inventory standard or maximum quantity. This is known as a
maximum exception. In this case, the warehouse manager receives a warning message from the system.
If this message is ignored, the order in question will be rerouted to a special warehouse approver to get
approval to exceed the inventory standard.

13

In contrast, a minimum exception occurs when the inventory level of an item drops to or below the
order point. When this occurs, the item will appear on the Replenishment Action Report (RRACT). This
report notifies the warehouse manager that it is time to replenish the item.
Order-Cycle System: In this system, every 30, 60 or 90 days you go through your inventory and check
product levels. You order more of products that you suspect will sell out before the following scheduled
inventory checkup. This is the worst of the four inventory control methods. It is fraught with danger. If
you only look at your inventory levels every 30 days or so, you could run into overstock problems or
shortages. You should steer clear of this inventory control method.
Product development techniques
1. Idea Generation
2. Idea Screening
3. Concept Development and Testing
4. Business Analysis
5. Market Testing Technical Implementation
6. Commercialization New Product Pricing
By following these steps we have developed our product.
Here are three core techniques to use:
1. Find the highs and the lows. Rather than asking consumers what they want, ask them about what
they already have. What do they like about current products? What don't they like? They'll be able to
give you much more useful information when they are drawing from personal experience.
2. Be a fly on the wall. Try to see everything they do that relates to the need your product fills. There's a
great story about how the legendary "Got Milk" campaign emerged from a media team observing real
consumers with (and without) milk in their homes.
3. Look at the ecosystem. Few products exist in a vacuum. Chairs and desks are built at heights that
work together. I buy motor oil because they make cars that require it. As the relevant peripheral
products evolve, new opportunities emerge for you to evolve your product.

Takeaway
Pay structure:
We have hired 15 employees and each member is earning 10,000 salaries and labor force is also hired at
6000 per labor. We have almost 35 labors.
Training methods:
Following training methods are used in our company:
On-The-Job Training:
Jumping right into work from day one can sometimes be the most effective type of training. On-the-job
training gives employees motivation to start the job. Some reports indicate that people learn more
efficiently if they learn hands-on, rather than listening to an instructor. However, this method might not
be for everyone, as it could be very stressful.
Coaching/Mentoring
Coaching/mentoring gives employees a chance to receive training one-on-one from an experienced
professional. This usually takes place after another more formal process has taken place to expand on
what trainees have already learned. Coaching/mentoring gives trainees the chance to ask questions and
receive thorough and honest answers - something they might not receive in a classroom with a group of
people.
Group Discussions & Tutorials
These most likely take place in a classroom where a group of people discuss issues. A better form of
training than lectures, it allows all trainees to discuss issues concerning the new program. It also enables
every attendee to voice different ideas and bounce them off one another.

15

Films & Videos
Films and videos can be used on their own or in conjunction with other training methods. To be truly
effective, training films and videos should be geared towards a specific objective. Only if they are
produced effectively, will they keep the trainees attention. They are also effective in stimulating
discussion on specific issues after the film or video is finished.
Case Studies
Case studies provide trainees with a chance to analyze and discuss real workplace issues. They develop
analytical and problem-solving skills, and provide practical illustrations of principle or theory. They
can also build a strong sense of teamwork as teams struggle together to make sense of a case.
Conclusion
Many avenues exist to train employees. The key is to match the training method to the situation. Assess
each training method implemented in the organization and get feedback from trainees to see if they
learned anything. Then take the results from the most popular and most effective methods to design a
specific training program.
