Because if up doesn't know, can-can be beaten by a boss later, hehe. For that reason, this article will discuss on quotation (definition, function, and the type of quotation) in manufacturing.
Definition Of Quotation
Own quotation comes from the United Kingdom. This means that the search itself was Yes in English-United Kingdom. In principle, the quotation is the contract price agreement between buyer and seller. Its functions could be well-thumbed according the position of the company. So, when we refer to a quote, then in it there will be the kind of stuff that will be traded along with the price. Well, the prices here are becoming important points in a quotation. Because of the price stated in the quotation is essentially the price that applies to the transaction will be done. But don't just get there. Usually a quote in addition to showing the price, will also include payment method (term of payment) to be done. Term of payment itself can be manifold, can cash on delivery (payment is made simultaneously with the goods come directly or paid time), cash before delivery (payment is made before the goods are delivered), TOP 15, 30, 60 days (even payments are made when due, depending on how many days maturity), and much more. In addition to the prices and terms of payment, quotation can also include the period of introduction of the quotation. Why should there be? So obviously, until when the buyer can take account of their spending with that price until the specified period. Also so that sellers are protected, if at any time should raise prices due to various factors, such as rising raw materials, shipping becomes more difficult, and so on.

In addition, the minimum order will be usually implies the fall in unit price, which of course benefit the buyer.
The Function Of Quotation
As is clear from the definition of the quotation above, the function of the quotation was not very far from there. Quotation in the manufacturing industry serves to protect the agreement between both parties, so that the purchase contract becomes more obvious and can be used as a guide to keep the cashflow.
The Type Of Quotation
According to their respective role in the transaction, the type of quotation is divided into two types: Vendor's and Quote Customer's Quote.
Vendor's quotation means the list price of the deal (the contract) is there for our manufacturing company against the vendor. So, when we buy things, we got was Vendor's Quotation.
Customer's Quotation means the list price of the deal (the contract) is there for our manufacturing company against the customer. So, when we sell, we spend is a customer's quotation. That's the last little thing about the quotation, may be useful. If anyone is still confused, can be asked in the comment box. 🙂
