Also Trexel have protected their intellectual property through patents, which allow maintaining a sustainable competitive advantage in the time. For these reasons, it is necessary to analyze the competitive advantage of the different options presented.
However, it is important to recognise that the competition in luxury fashion is not based on price but rather on image perception and brand value and quality. It could be argued that competitive rivalry is slightly lower in emerging markets because of their recent development and the slower entrance of key players in this industry. Potentially, this can be offset by the competition of local fashion retailer. Bargaining Power of Buyers Luxury brands have all individual consumers to sell to globally but also in a given country.

Big advantages need to be broke down for their financial value and smaller advantages might seem to be more difficult to measure at first, but they will ultimately give the business more financial opportunity in the future.

A company needs to arrive with information systems plans that satisfy the business plan and approach, and correspond with their existing information technologies. Using scoring models and portfolios breakdown can both be used to help evaluate information systems
Two disadvantages to automation are that it costs more and it is not easily changed. 6. A products margin is determined by subtracting its manufacturing cots (labor and material) from its price. Logically, higher prices and lower labor and material costs result in higher margins. Keeping in mind the customer buying criteria, how would you increase margins for a low end product?
These two markets were chosen so that Techsol could position a high volume small margin offering to the markets that would stabilize production due its substantial need. The other side of that was to produce a lower volume high margin offering that would be easy to add to the production, with little additional overhead, and would add a good profit to the bottom line. TechSol chose to enter two large markets initially to take advantage of economies of scale for its production facilities to improve its cost position over its competitors to be able to enter the market at a lower price point than the competition.

If there is an over production in the goods due to negative externalities, it means (s) has shifted to (s1). Which results in too many goods being supplied out to the public. The prices are also very low which makes it easier for them to buy goods, especially those with lower income. At the point the social cost [s1] is not taken into account only the private cost is.
The ability to tap into the global labor market will make the company more competitive by being able to offer competitive prices on products due to lower overhead cost associated with the offset in the labor cost.
