Tales of a Chinese Purchaser, Episode 12 (買手的故事, 第12集)

In episode 12 and the next few episodes, we will discuss how to handle things when order size changes (產品訂單有變時,如何處理).

  • When products are selling well ==> Increase order size or move up shipment (當產品暢銷 == >增加訂單或提早出貨)
  • When products are selling poorly ==> Decrease order size or delay shipment (當產品不暢銷 == >減少訂單或延遲出貨)
  • How purchasers can use computer to generate “rescheduling reports” to help process these changes (買手如何可使用電腦 “新調度報告” 來幫助處理這些變化)
  • When suppliers can’t meet the revised scheduling requests (當供應商不能滿足 “新調度” 的要求)
