MasterTag (Case Study)

Q1. Explain the key benefits of the revised approach and the reason for the benefit?

The key benefits to the revised approach is that tags are sent directly to the growers. The growers will then be able to order another set of tags once the plants have grown since they will have surplus in plants. The main reason of the approach is based on not having a plenty of un-used tags shipped to the grower from the seed companies.

Q2. Master tag has not yet decided to implement this plan. list the pros and cons you think should be considered?

The pros is:
 1- The tags will not leave the seed from plantation till it reaches the retail customer.
2- The grower is able to order new tags directly from MasterTags.
3- The seeds company don't have to sort and send off their order to the growers.
4- The seed companies won't have a surplus of tags in their warehouse.
5- The grower would be better to utilize the process of order from MasterTag because they would know what plants survived  from the seeds.

The cons of the plan is adding extra procedures to the growers manufacturing process. As they now have to work more on forecasting and planning with two companies MasterTags and the seed companies.
