Number of products to be manufactured

You have workmen? You have machines? Now, you have to fix the number of products you wish to see leaving the line productions of your company. It will be necessary for you to make the right choice and as well as possible estimate the number of products which will be sold at the end of the turn in order not to lose sales, because of an undervaluation, but not too much not to produce either because product stocks cost a lot, and it will have to be sell out next turns.

Selling price of the products

To fix the selling price is not an easy thing in a very competitive market: fix a too high price and the customers will see what your competitors sell, put a too low price and you will reduce your margins. This balance must be done thanks to your experiment on the market.

The customers pay attention to the prices but also to the quality of the products. They will not buy an expensive product if it is not good quality or at the point of technology. Go on the page “Marketing” to invest in R & D.

Storage costs of your products

Each product stored in the warehouse has a cost each turn: $10. So be careful to adjust correctly this stock.

Type of target market, and associated transport cost

Depending on the number of products sold, your business will expand its target market. So if:

  • less than 150 product sold: local market,
    with an associated transport cost : Ex: 2 / product
  • less than 300 product sold: regional market,
    with an associated transport cost : Ex: 6 / product
  • less than 450 product sold: national market,
    with an associated transport cost : Ex: 10 / product
  • more than 450 product sold: international market,
    with an associated transport cost : Ex: 14 / product
