WHY MADE TO ORDER?
Make to Order (MTO) is a production technique in which producers start manufacturing a product only after the customer places an order for it. In such a case, commodities are produced in a customized manner according to the specifications of the customer.
- Make to Order (MTO) is a production technique in which producers start manufacturing a product only after the customer places an order for it.
- Unlike Make to Stock, MTO does not require companies to hold inventories of finished goods. Therefore, there is no risk of wastage of inventory.
- Since it is made according to specifications of the customer, delivery times are much more lengthy than other generic goods.
Advantages of Make To Order
1. Reduces wastage
When a stock of goods lies unsold, there is a wastage not only of the materials used to make them, but also the money and labor put into producing them. In MTO, since products are manufactured after receiving a customer’s order and in the quantity specified, wastage and loss are minimized.
2. Less inefficiency
When a large variety of goods are made on a large-scale basis, there is a risk of inefficiency because workers and machines need to adhere to different rules. In MTO, all efforts are focused on making the product according to the specifications of the customer, so workers and machines tend to be more efficient.
3. Greater variety
Since only customized goods are produced and sold, MTO offers a greater variety of products. In fact, it provides customers the product exactly the way they want it.
Disadvantages of Make To Order
1. Irregular sales
It is difficult to determine when demand may arise for a particular customized product. So, there may be periods of high sales and months of no sale at all.
2. Lengthy delivery time
Since production starts after receiving an order, the product reaches the customer after some time. Moreover, because it takes time to customize the product, the delivery time may take longer.
