decorations and accessories so that the padekette will be attractive. Next is
the price, price has always been a factor in the marketing world, how much
will the group sell the padekette? Price is important because it is hard to
guess the ideal price of people when it comes to notebooks. The group will

profit.

down notes, or reminders, they can even turn it into a diary or a journal, and
basically people can do whatever they want with the padekette as long as
the products contributes in peoples everyday work.

2. What are the economic uses of the product/service?

It will be helpful to the economy because the group will be making use of
a diskette, now a diskette is not really used today, and now, the group found
a way to recycle diskettes. The diskette will be turned into a notebook,
wherein people can right reminders, notes and possibly anything that they
want. It will be much more helpful to students because, students are always
writing down notes.
B. Manufacturing Process
1. How shall the product be manufactured/service be implemented?
(Show detailed flow charts).

C. Plant Size and Production Schedule


1. What are the daily and annual production capacities of the plant?
The group will make 16 padekettes per day, the group assumes that it is
enough if the group will sell 16 padekettes on each day.
2. How many days per year shall the project operate?
The project will operate for about 240 days in a year.
D. Machinery/Equipment
1. What is the machinery/equipment layout? (Indicate the number of
units, specifications and prices).
The group did not make use of any machinery or equipment.
2. Where are the spare parts and repair service available?

In terms of spare parts, the only crucial item that a person needs to repair
the padekette is the ring binders because, a single padekette needs two
strong ring binders to hold the diskettes and the papers inside.
Conclusions
The group therefore conclude that, the product Padekette will be an
affordable yet useful product for the customers especially students. The
group will charge a single padekette around Php 50, so that it is not too pricy
and it is profitable at the same time.
