Marks: 10
Pakistan for the last many years is exporting textile goods and garments in many countries
of the world. The textile products made in Faisalabad are exported to Europe and many
other countries. Last year Pakistan was given GSP Plus status and it is predictable that the
demand for Pakistani textile products will boost up. At the other hand the condition at
home is different. The country has severe scarcity of gas and electricity, and everyday we
find workers and mill owners protesting on roads.
Jahagir textile mill (JTM) which was established last year is a strait of the art processing unit.
It has tremendous potential to gain major share in export quota but it has to compete with
many big exporters in the country.
Owing to your subject knowledge of Production/Operations Management answer the
following questions.
1. What advantage JTM has to establish its name as an international brand?
2. How JTM should compete with big exporters in country to get major share in GSP Plus
export quota?
3. What strategy JTM should adopt to meet the gas/electricity shortage to produce cost
effective products?
4. As a Production/Operations Manager how can you make forecasting more accurate?
Note: every question carries equal marks. The answer should be precise and comprehensive. Every
answer should not have more than three bullet points explained in one or two lines.

Q.2 Use the following as a guide to developing your Export Strategy:

1 Look inside your company

Analyse your company’s operations and growth aspirations. Take into account

your competitive position and highlight your strengths and unique selling

propositions. Assess your strengths in terms of product, service, staff, distribution

and technical service.

2 The export environment

Assess the factors that will impact on your export plans. Do you have international

expertise in the company? Are you aware of export markets where your products

have been sold previously? In this section, undertake the bulk of your market research

and market selection activities. These will include market analysis, ranking market

attractiveness, assessing competition, understanding export market environments,

distribution and logistics.

3 Product And service offerings

What modifications will you need to make to your product or service to satisfy overseas buyers? What packaging, labelling and presentational modifications are required?
