8Manufacture processMango hasn’t any factories and all of its designs are subcontracted to extern suppliers who are responsible of the manufacture process.It works with “Just in Time” system, because it wants to have only the necessary goods at the adequate time. This is the reason for subcontrating the garments as near as urgent is the order.
9Production SystemsThere are two different production systems in this organisation:The first of these consists of designing a product, outsourcing its manufacture and acquiring it when it is complete. In this case, suppliers are in charge of buying all the primary materials for production.In the second system they also design the garment but, in contrast to the above, Mango acquires all the primary materials used to make the garment, and later send it to the supplier for production.
10Their main goal is that each shop have what it’s necessary in each moment having the minimum stock. They make sure that goods are modernized frequently, while clothes are produced according to the market request rate. Everyday, information is processed and then they replace clothes or make goods trades between their shops.Mango’s main tool is an informatic software that makes possible to manage the difficult design, purchase, manufacture, sale and post sale processes automatically.
